Brit torture of Iraq prisoner
A Mirror UK exclusive
A hooded Iraqi captive is beaten by British soldiers before being thrown from a moving truck and left to die.
The prisoner, aged 18-20, begged for mercy as he was battered with rifle butts and batons in the head and groin, was kicked, stamped and urinated on, and had a gun barrel forced into his mouth.
After an EIGHT-HOUR ordeal, he was left barely conscious and close to death. Bleeding and vomiting and with a broken jaw and missing teeth, he was driven from a Basra camp and hurled off the truck. No one knows if he lived or died.
What had the prisoner done? Was he a ‘terrorist’? Had he been attacking British troops? Nope, “the young victim was hauled in suspected of stealing from the docks.” He was a thief, and for that was beaten and tortured for eight hours then left for dead.
