    Video shows British soldiers beating young Iraqis

    From the footage i've seen, and the reports i've read, it appears that the British soldiers involved had the youngsters under control, and there was absolutely no need to give those young Iraqis a beating. Today's Observer has this report:

    The MoD has repeatedly given assurances that Iraqis who are captured are treated with respect and decency by British troops. The Abu Ghraib prison scandal involving Americans, dating back to 2004, shocked the world but Downing Street was adamant that there could not be any similar scandal involving the UK forces. However, there have been investigations by MoD prosecutors into a series of serious allegations of abuse by its troops in southern Iraq.

    It certainly is outrageous, it's headline news over here in Britain, of course we get the usual "we are fully investigating..this sort of thing isn't the norm..etc.."
