Iraq suspects suffocate in heat

By nightfall eight of the detainees had died from the heat
Nine building workers have died in Iraq after being arrested on suspicion of insurgent activity and then left in a closed metal container.
Three men survived the ordeal, police sources said, despite being left for 14 hours in the burning Iraqi summer heat.

They had apparently been caught up in a firefight between US troops and Iraqi gunmen, and were detained after taking an injured colleague to hospital.

Police commandos face numerous claims that they abuse and torture detainees.

Meanwhile, gunmen have attacked an Iraqi army checkpoint north of Baghdad, killing at least nine soldiers.

Scorching heat

Police sources told the BBC that at least 12 men had been arrested on Sunday after they had taken a colleague to hospital in Ameriya with gunshot wounds.

A local resident, thinking they were insurgents, called the police, who sent commandos to arrest the men.


Police commandos are accused of systematic abuse of detainees
At about midday, they were put into a metal container and by nightfall eight prisoners were dead and three were in a critical condition.

The survivors were taken to a central Baghdad hospital where staff said a ninth man died.

The Iraqi capital suffers scorching heat during the summer months, with temperatures often reaching 50 degrees.

A doctor told the BBC that one of the survivors had said he had been given repeated electric shocks by the commandos.

The survivors were kept under police guard as they were treated and were taken away without being allowed to speak to journalists.

Recent UK press reports have alleged police commandos systematically torture and abuse detainees. The security forces themselves are the target of much of Iraq's insurgency violence.




USA USA USA!!! So that's why there are so many suicide bombers outside of police recruitment offices, hm? You know, I wouldn't have much of a problem with US female soldiers kicking prisoners in the balls and maybe other forms of torture, if they actually are terrorists, but in most cases they're not.

What surprises me is that an Iraqi called the police. That shows us that Iraqis are no longer just letting these scum get away, but I'm sure not every1 has the balls to risk their life and their family's life to call the popo.

America's debt problem is a "sign of leadership failure"

We have "reckless fiscal policies"

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.

Americans deserve better

Yeah. "Who cares? Just some Arabs.", "Another casualty of war." It's amazing how the pro-war are still continuing on with that mantra. I try to think of how I'd feel and give a shit if the tables were turned. That's why I posted it.

The Iraqi police did this, not the US military. You can't hold us accountable for everything.
