Kidnap and torture: new claims of Army war crimes in Iraq - Independent Online Edition > Legal: "The British Army is facing new allegations that it was involved in 'forced disappearances', hostage-taking and torture of Iraqi civilians after the fall of the regime of Saddam Hussein.
One of the claims is made by the former chairman of the Red Crescent in Basra, who alleges he was beaten unconscious by British soldiers after they accused him of being a senior official in Saddam's Baath party."
