GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) -- An Afghan prisoner suffered significant weight loss and other health problems when the military subjected him to two weeks of sleep deprivation at Guantanamo in 2004, his lawyer said Friday.

Mohammed Jawad lost 10 percent of his body weight and told doctors he was urinating blood after guards subjected him to the sleep deprivation program, Air Force Maj. David Frakt, his Pentagon-appointed lawyer, said, citing records from the prison on a U.S. base in Cuba.
