Photos Surface of Iraq Abuse by British Soldiers

Correction Jan. 20, 2005

The name of a British politician was mispronounced in this story. Sir Menzies Campbell's first name is pronounced "ming-is."

Pictures of British soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners have been released during the court-martial of several members of the British Army. Media in the U.K. have dubbed the story "Britain's Abu Ghraib," and Prime Minister Tony Blair has promised a full investigation.
