Yonas FikreA former Oregon businessman is suing the U.S. government and two FBI agents he says had him tortured in the Middle East after he refused to become an informant.

Yonas Fikre, a naturalized U.S. citizen of Eritrean descent, says the agents were present when he was imprisoned and tortured in the Gulf nation for 106 days, The Oregonian reported Thursday.

Fikre, 33, claims the agents, Jason Dundas and David Noordeloos, became angry with him during a 2010 interrogation in Sudan when he refused to become an informant at a mosque he attended in Portland.
