Iraq Prison Abuse Court-Martial to Get Under Way

The court-martial of reservist Jeremy Sivits is scheduled to begin Wednesday, the first of seven proceedings over the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. troops. Sivits, who has cooperated with investigators, is expected to provide information that can be used against the other defendants, most of whom are facing more serious charges.
