This is liberation for you boys and girls! UK soldiers captured and brutally beat 8 young Iraqis. The kicking was so bad that one of these men died
from their injuries. They were kidnapped unarmed and subjected to interrogation, which seemed to comprise mainly of being booted severely until they
gave up information. What information they were after is unclear, as is whether they were after any information at all.
As to how often these beatings could be happening is unclear, stories like this are unfortunately not often reported and behaviour like this could be
happening on a regular basis.
With reports that US soldiers have been ransacking numerous Iraqi locations, inlcluding the Sunni mosque.
it's beginning to sound less like liberation, and more like invasion and occupation.
"Eight young Iraqis arrested in Basra were kicked and assaulted by British soldiers, one of them so badly that he died in British custody,
according to military and medical records seen by The Independent on Sunday."
