Actor and rapper Mos Def undergoes a force-feeding procedure on camera as part of a campaign to help Guantanamo Bay hunger-strikers.

The film, released by human rights charity Reprieve, shows Mos Def, known as Yasiin Bey chained to a feeding chair while doctors inserted more rubber tubing up his nose.

The 39-year-old said afterwards on the film: "I really didn't know what to expect. Then the tube went in, and the first part of it is not that bad but then you get this burning, I got this burning. And then it just starts to be unbearable. It feels like something was going into my brain and it started reaching the back of my throat and I really couldn't take it."

The film was made as the US government comes under pressure to stop force-feeding Muslim detainees during the holy month of Ramadan.
