The Independent: Did UK collude with US in abuse of Iraqis?

In 2007, Nassir Ghulaim, a young Iraqi, was playing football with friends.

British soldiers took them to a British base.

"The soldiers then made us squeeze together in a pile, while a soldier stood on top of us and shouted and laughed."

Ghulaim says the soldiers forced a younger Iraqi to strip naked and started playing with his penis and taking photographs.

Ghulaim says "used an electric baton on various parts of my body."

After three days of detention, Ghulaim was freed without charge.

Hussain Hashim Khinyab, arrested in April 2006, claims that he was tortured at a British camp and sexually abused by female personnel.

In 2003, a 16-year-old Iraqi was among a group of Iraqis taken to the Shatt-al-Arab British camp to help fill sandbags. The 16-year old says he was raped by two British soldiers.
