A video, obtained by the News of the World and shown on BBC TV on 11 February 2006, shows a group of British soldiers brutally beating and kicking defenceless Iraqi teenagers in an army compound.

The footage shows eight soldiers pulling four teenagers off the street and dragging them into their army base, before beating them with batons, as well as punching and kicking them.

In one of the most brutal scenes, a soldier punches one of the prisoners in the head and the stomach. He is then headbutted and kicked further.

Another scene shows a soldier walking up to one of the boys and kicking him hard between the legs from behind. The boy is seen doubling up in pain.

In some of the worst footage, a prisoner is kicked in the back and the body six times by two soldiers. As he struggles on the floor, one of the soldiers grabs him again by the shoulder, kicks him twice and then begins to hit him on the legs with a baton.

The video also shows footage of a soldier drawing back the blanket over an Iraqi corpse to display it close up to the camera as if it is a trophy.

The informant is quoted as saying: ´These Iraqis were just kids. Most haven´t even got shoes on.´

I am sure you will be condemning all the violence to all childeren from anybody else without being hypocratical..

All childeren includes Kurdish citizens and anybody else includes our own police and the army..

Yes?

There was a video the other day, showing how a Kurdish boy´s arm got broken by the police..

Have you condemned it? {#lang_emotions_unsure}

It is good to know that you are aware of what is going on in your OWN country and you are a sensitive person

Because there are many around who does not know ´anything´ about where they live or prefer to turn blind eyes into these sort of things..

It is good to know that you are not one of them.. lol

right, as you said, it`s my own country, but Iraq is not the property of these bloody invaders, and these are the ones who claim to bring "peace" to Iraq.

Absolutely agree with you..

Everybody should have every single right to condemn any type violence anywhere in the world..

A Turk has right to criticize Iraq so as a British so as a Polish etc..

Same rules should be applied when Turkey is criticized of course.

I am sure you will not get cross when someone criticize Turkey in the future..

Good to know that..Thanks..

sure, no one from outside of Turkey condemns akp for the massacre they carried out in sivas though, for example. that would be welcome but no one does that. is it because, alevis are less huiman than kurds or because alevis don`t claim independence.

This is old news which has been posted on TC a couple of years ago.  You must have been searching hard for revenge following the comments about Islam..... even though you protest you are not muslim.... lol  Is this the best you could come up with?!

 

How YOU make me laugh

 Yes we all watched this with horror as it was played on our news (and thanks for hte blow by blow account) but it is old news, which Britian condemmed 3 years ago, those soldiers are now in prison.  And of course nothing like this would happen with Turkish army would it??
