More evidence of systematic torture

from Socialist Worker

Another inquiry is to begin next month after up to 20 Iraqis were tortured and murdered in British custody in 2004.

British soldiers detained a number of men after a gun battle in southern Iraq known as the “Battle of Danny Boy”. The next day, they handed 22 bodies to relatives.

Evidence of torture includes close-range bullet wounds, the removal of eyes and stab wounds. The death certificates describe how the Iraqis died: “Several gunshot wounds to body—severance of sexual organs.”
