In London's High Court, families of six dead civilians have put together a test case against UK soldiers. The court heard on Wednesday from an Iraqi
witness that British soldiers laughed while they kicked and beat Iraqi detainees. The soldiers also poured freezing water on their heads and forced
them to recite the names of English soccer players.
LONDON (Reuters) - Laughing British soldiers tortured Iraqi detainees by beating and kicking them, pouring freezing water on their heads and forcing
them to recite names of English and Dutch football stars, a court heard on Wednesday.
The accusations -- which throw the spotlight back on troop behavior in the U.S.-led occupation -- came from an Iraqi witness at London's High Court
where families of six dead civilians have launched a test case against UK soldiers.

The witness went on to say that the soldiers seemed to be enjoying themselves while carrying out the torture.
Jobs will be lost over this, especially if people believe this witness. Whether it can be proved that the witness is telling the truth, we don't
know. If he is then coalition forces lose most all of their creditability.
