[JURIST] British lawyer Phil Shiner said Tuesday that he has evidence that US forces mistreated detainees in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, which would mean that abuse of detainees in Iraq spread beyond Baghdad's Abu Ghraib prison. Shiner released statements by two Iraqi men who said they had been hooded, stripped naked, beaten and doused with cold water during lengthy torture sessions.
One of the men, Yasir Rubaii Saeed al-Qutaji, is an Iraqi lawyer who was investigating reports of abuse at the Mosul prison when he was detained. Reuters has more. From the UK, the Guardian has local coverage of the allegations.
