An inquiry into allegations that British soldiers tortured and killed people in Iraq finally started hearings this week.
The Al-Sweady inquiry is looking at events following the “Battle of Danny Boy” in May 2004.
The battle occurred when rebel fighters ambushed British soldiers near a checkpoint called Danny Boy, near Al–Majar.
Soldiers killed 28 Iraqis and a further nine were taken prisoner.
Six of the prisoners were killed while in British custody.
Evidence of torture includes close-range bullet wounds, the removal of eyes and stab wounds.
