The US-based group Human Rights Watch said Friday that Hamas is violating the international rules of war by prohibiting Gilad Schalit from having contact with his family or visits from the Red Cross.

Human Rights Watch called the treatment of the 23-year-old soldier "cruel and inhuman" and described it as matching the UN definition of torture because he is denied any outside contact.
