Youths, brutally beaten by UK troops, may be charged with attempted murder.

TWO Iraqi teenagers filmed being beaten by British troops will be charged with attempted murder.

The Daily Mirror, 20 February 2006, reported that two Iraqi teenagers, brutally beaten by UK troops, face a "brutal" grilling - from their own side.

The youths were among four filmed being beaten by baton-wielding soldiers.

According to The Daily Mirror:
EXCLUSIVE: ATTEMPTED MURDER


TWO Iraqi rioters filmed being beaten by British troops will be charged with attempted murder.

Iraqi officials have vowed to prosecute them for attempted murder. If convicted, they face jail in appalling conditions.

A Whitehall source said yesterday: "Local police know exactly who they are and lifting them shouldn't be a problem.

"They'll be dealt with far more brutally by their own people than by our soldiers." Last night officers from the Iraqi Tactical Support Unit, the equivalent of Britain's CID, were preparing to swoop on the suspects and take them into custody.
