Iraq: New Iraq abuse allegations against UK troops

British troops will face fresh charges of breaching international law over the alleged torture and killing of prisoners during the war in Iraq. New allegations will be revealed during a hearing at the High Court in London on Tuesday. Lawyers for over 100 Iraqis who claim they are victims of abuse will place a file of statements before two judges, accusing British soldiers and intelligence officers of unlawful practices.
