The Australian: Iraqi 'beaten to death' by US troops [April 14, 2004]
AN Iraqi has died of his wounds after US troops beat him with truncheons because he refused to remove a picture of wanted Shiite Muslim leader Moqtada Sadr from his car, police said today.
The motorist was stopped late yesterday by US troops conducting search operations on a street in the centre of the central city of Kut, Lieutenant Mohamad Abdel Abbas said.
After the man refused to remove Sadr's picture from his car, the soldiers forced
him out of the vehicle and started beating him with truncheons, he said.
I am not sure how this is being covered in the Arabic press but I can only expect the worst.
