Washington - The CIA did not infiltrate computers of the Senate committee investigating the agency's interrogation and detention programme for terrorism suspects, CIA Director John Brennan said on Tuesday.

"Nothing could be further from the truth. We wouldn't do that," Brennan told the Council on Foreign Relations.

Brennan spoke after Senator Dianne Feinstein, chairperson of the Senate's intelligence committee, accused the agency of spying on its computers and thwarting the release of its report on the CIA programme that included harsh interrogation practices.

"We are not trying at all to prevent it's release," Brennan said.
