A U.N. human rights expert voiced alarm on Friday that U.S. President Donald Trump might allow torture in interrogations, warning that it "lays down the gauntlet" for other countries to follow suit.U.N. special rapporteur on protecting human rights Ben Emmerson told the U.N. Human Rights Council that, hearing Trump extol torture as a weapon against terrorism shortly after his inauguration "was enough to make my blood run cold".Making his final public comments after six years in the independent post, Emmerson later told reporters that Trump was the first democratically-elected head of state to positively advocate torture.Emmerson also said senior officials from George W. Bush's administration should be prosecuted for allowing torture, Emmerson added.
