    Iraq as bad as Saddam days

    This just in from Terrorism News:

    LONDON: Abuse of human rights in Iraq is as bad now as it was under Saddam Hussein, if not worse, former prime minister Iyad Allawi said in an interview published yesterday.

    "People are doing the same as (in) Saddam Hussein's time and worse. It is an appropriate comparison," Dr Allawi, a secular Shi'ite and former Baathist who is standing in elections scheduled for December 15, told British newspaper The Observer.

    "People are remembering the days of Saddam," he said.

    "These are the precise reasons why we fought Saddam Hussein and now we are seeing the same things.

    "We are hearing about secret police, secret bunkers where people are being interrogated," Dr Allawi said in an apparent reference to the discovery of a bunker at the Shi'ite-run Interior Ministry where 170 men were held prisoner, beaten, half-starved and in some cases tortured.

    "A lot of Iraqis are being tortured or killed in the course of interrogations."
