The United Nations said Wednesday that it is looking into a complaint that the Army private suspected of giving classified documents to WikiLeaks has been mistreated in custody.

The UN office for torture issues in Geneva said it received a complaint from one of Pfc. Bradley Manning's supporters alleging that conditions in a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Virginia, amount to torture. Visitors say he spends at least 23 hours a day alone in a cell.

The UN could ask the United States to stop any violations it finds.
