Pictures From the Baha Mousa Inquiry

IN September 2003, Baha Mousa, an Iraqi civilian died in Iraq. He died whilst in custody of the British.

An Inquiry is established under the Inquiries Act 2005 and is chaired by the Right Honourable Sir William Gage, a retired Court of Appeal judge. His terms of reference are:

To investigate and report on the circumstances surrounding the death of Baha Mousa and the treatment of those detained with him, taking account of the investigations which have already taken place, in particular where responsibility lay for approving the practice of conditioning detainees by any members of the 1st Battalion, The Queen’s Lancashire Regiment in Iraq in 2003, and to make recommendations.”

That inquiry is underway. Pictures from it are below – and they are disturbing:
