Iraq abuse ‘more widespread than previously acknowledged’

From ITV News:

In an interview with ITV News, a former soldier with the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment said that the abuse was far more widespread than previously acknowledged.

His words are in stark contrast to Army claims that incidences of abuse are isolated and carried out by a few rogue elements. The soldier, who has not been identified, has spoken out as three soldiers from his regiment face war crimes trials.

The soldier has claimed that the abuse was sparked the death of popular officer Dai Jones.

If this is true there may be parallels with the case of Peter McBride, who was shot dead in Belfast by two Scots Guards in 1992, some days after one of their comrades was killed by an IRA sniper.
