Al-Sweady inquiry hears father’s allegations of torture by British troops

The first witness to give evidence alleges marks of torture on his son’s body, but the claims are dismissed by the inquiry QC The father of an Iraqi teenager who was allegedly murdered by British soldiers has described injuries on his son’s body as a bullet wound in the neck, a fractured right jaw, bruises to the chest, and marks around the neck “resembling a necklace”. Injuries to other Iraqis included “bodies distorted and mutiliated, eyes missing, tongues cut out, and noses cut off”, he told a public inquiry on Monday.
