British-trained police in Iraq ‘killed prisoners with drills’
British-trained police operating in Basra have tortured at least two civilians to death with electric drills, The Independent on Sunday can reveal.
Here’s the jaw dropper.
The victims were suspected of collaborating with coalition forces, according to intelligence reports. Despite being pressed "very hard" by Britain, however, the Iraqi authorities in Basra are failing to even investigate incidents of torture and murder by police, ministers admit.
The article explains that Brit-trained police forces are controlled by militias, and they are torturing those found collaborating with, well, Brits.
