"A court on Tuesday backed an independent inquiry into charges that British troops beat to death an Iraqi civilian prisoner, in a test case
overruling Defense Secretary Geoff Hoon's rejection of such a probe.
The High Court ruled in favor of the family of Baha Mousa, a 26-year-old hotel worker who died in British military custody days after his arrest on
September 14, 2003 near the southern Iraqi city of Basra."
Well it looks like the US doesn't have a monopoly on war crimes in Iraq. Comments?
