Four men accused of killing 76 people who were watching a 2010 World Cup soccer game on TV in Uganda claim FBI agents beat them up during questioning, the Huffington Post reports.

The suspects were punched, kicked and ridiculed, according to complaints to the Open Society Justice Initiative, an international rights group.

The FBI denies the charges.

“The FBI is responsible for investigating overseas terrorist attacks against U.S. persons or U.S. institutions. When investigating cases overseas, all FBI personnel operate within the guidelines established by the Attorney General as well as all other applicable laws, policies and regulations,” FBI spokesman Paul Bresson told the Huffington Post

The allegations are under investigation.
