"The brutal death of an Iraqi man held by British soldiers months after the U.S.-led invasion of the country was an 'appalling episode of serious gratuitous violence' and partly a result of the U.K.'s failure to properly train troops on interrogation techniques, a report said Thursday. The inquiry into 26-year-old Baha Mousa's killing underscores a sordid episode in British military history, one that gave the U.K. its first convicted war criminal." (09/08/11)
