Iraqi prisoners allegedly forced to dance like Michael Jackson
Courier-Mail |

"British troops took turns abusing a group of Iraqi detainees, dousing them in cold water , kickboxing them against a wall and ordering them to 'dance like Michael Jackson,' one of the detainees said in a chilling statement read out today in a London court... [Kifah Taha al-Mutari] was among a group of hotel workers detained at the Darul Dhyafa military base near Basra, in British-occupied southern Iraq - one of whom, Baha Mousa, 26, died in custody in September 2003... Mutari alleged that he and his fellow detainees were beaten on the neck, chest and genital areas, and that 'Baha appeared to have much worse ill-treatment than the others.' He said all the detainees were hooded, not once but twice, and 'given water by it being poured over the hood so that we had to lick the droplets that seeped through the hood.'"
