POW 'torture photos' investigated

The MoD says reports of abuse will be "thoroughly investigated"

Allegations Iraqi prisoners of war were mistreated by UK troops are being investigated, after photographs allegedly showing the abuse were discovered.

A British soldier has been arrested on suspicion of taking the pictures, including one showing an Iraqi, bound and gagged, hanging from netting on a fork-lift truck.

Police were called in after the photographs were handed into a store in Tamworth, Staffordshire, for developing.

If the pictures are found to show real Iraqis, and have not been stage-managed, such treatment would be a breach of the Geneva Convention which governs the treatment of POWs, says the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

Investigation conducted

An MoD spokeswoman said an investigation into the allegations was under way.

"We can confirm that an investigation is being conducted into allegations that a soldier took photographs depicting mistreatment of Iraqi POWs.

"We cannot comment further. But if there is any truth in these allegations the MoD is appalled.

"We take responsibility to POWs extremely seriously.

THIRD GENEVA CONVENTION

Basic food rations should keep prisoners in good health

Suitable clothing should be supplied, preferably prisoners' original uniforms

Prisoners must be protected against violence or intimidation, insults and public curiosity

POWs should be released and repatriated after ceasefire

"The Geneva Convention makes clear that 'prisoners of war are entitled to respect to their persons and their honour'.

"Any allegation that this has been breached must be seriously and thoroughly investigated.

"The individual concerned was arrested yesterday by Staffordshire Police and is in custody."

Lesley Warner, from Amnesty International, said: "If these allegations are true they are very clearly against the Geneva Convention.

"There is no doubt at all if prisoners of war were suspended from a net it is clearly degrading treatment and it should be investigated thoroughly."

The pictures are believed to have been taken by a soldier serving in the 1st battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers - part of the 7th Armoured Brigade, nicknamed the Desert Rats.

The pictures were handed into a store in Tamworth

The soldier - whose rank has not been disclosed - lives in Staffordshire.

Colonel Bob Stewart, former army officer, said: "If someone has done this then it devalues the British Army which is a great pity.

"That's why the British Army understands that if there's an accusation it must be rigorously pursued and proved either guilty or not guilty."

An investigation is already under way into allegations that Colonel Tim Collins, former commanding officers of the 1st Royal Irish Regiment, mistreated Iraqi civilians and prisoners - although the two cases are not linked.

Col Collins has strongly denied the claims.

Coalition 'tortured Iraqi POWs'

Troops are accused of beatings and using electric shocks

Amnesty International is investigating claims that Iraqi prisoners of war were tortured by US and British troops.

A "substantial proportion" of 20 former Iraqi POWs interviewed by the human rights group said they had been maltreated by coalition forces in central and southern Iraq.

Some were civilians who were held on suspicion of being Iraqi militia, Amnesty said. One Saudi Arabian national claimed he was subjected to electric shocks.

The UK's Ministry of Defence said it had not seen any of the details of the allegations.

"All the prisoners held by the British were held under the terms of the Geneva Convention, and they were frequently visited by members of the International Red Cross," a spokesman said.

In one case we are talking about electric shocks being used against a man and in others people are being beaten for the whole night

Amnesty International

The alleged mistreatment included "beatings with fists, with feet, also with weapons," Amnesty researcher Said Boumedouha said.

"In one case we are talking about electric shocks being used against a man and in others people are being beaten for the whole night and are still being kicked and their teeth broken. I think you would call that torture," he said.

The man claiming to have received electric shocks was believed to have been a Saudi man who had entered the country from Syria during the war and was suspected of being a volunteer for Saddam Hussein.

The findings follow Amnesty's first fact-finding mission in Iraq since 1993.

The human rights group said about 6,900 people were detained in Iraq while they were being assessed for POW status. Of these, about 1-2,000 remain in custody.

An Amnesty spokeswoman told BBC News Online the investigations into the treatment of PoWs were "at a very early stage".

Amnesty workers would be in Iraq for a number of months investigating a number of areas - including human rights abuses under Saddam Hussein - she added.
