The court martial of the only US Army officer charged in connection with the abuse scandal at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison has begun.
Lt-Col Steven Jordan, 51, is the last of 12 defendants to appear. He is accused of illegally allowing the use of dogs and nudity in interrogations.
The inquiry was triggered by pictures of US soldiers humiliating and abusing Iraqi prisoners in 2003 and 2004.
Lt-Col Jordan has pleaded innocent and says he is being used as a scapegoat.
