Here's a recent story about British soldiers torturing POWs

British Soldiers ‘Tortured and Killed’ 22 Iraqis By DS

02/01/08 "DS" -- - BRITISH soldiers have been accused of torturing 22 Iraqi citizens to death.

They are also said to have abused nine others held in their custody.

The allegations of brutality, dating back to 2004, can now be made public after a gagging order was lifted by a High Court judge yesterday.

The order had prevented any details of the alleged torture being reported by the Press or broadcast media.

It is alleged the abuse happened after British troops were ambushed on the road from Amara to Basra.

Following a firefight, a 31-strong band of Iraqis are said to have been seized by soldiers and taken into custody. They were held at British headquarters in Abu-Naji in south-east Iraq.

Out of the 31 people detained only nine survived and they claim they were subjected to torture. Iraqi death certificates are said to state that the corpses of the Iraqis who were rounded up showed signs of "mutilation" and "torture".

and so it goes,
