Protest rights abuses at Olympics


A British army medic has told how a 14-year-old Iraqi boy was bound and kicked before being left in stifling heat inside a Warrior armoured vehicle for more than an hour without water. The boy was kicked and punched each time he asked for water. The medic, from the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, was commended for his bravery after an operation in Iraq. - Army medic admits torturing Iraqi boy, 14

"It will be interesting to observe how many of those currently protesting against human rights abuse by the Peoples Republic of China in Tibet will direct their energies at protesting the abuse of human rights by the United Kingdom... I am sure Baha Mousa and his family would be grateful for any protest efforts, given that Mousa suffered and died at the hands of British army officers in 2004 and none of the officers have ever been brought to justice." - Gearing up to protest UK human rights abuses at the London 2012 Olympics: Baha Mousa RIP
