Ex-Abu Ghraib inmates get $5m settlement from US firm

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-20953889


The US handed over control of all of its detainment centres to Iraq in 2010


A defence contractor whose subsidiary was accused of conspiring to torture Abu Ghraib prisoners has settled with former inmates for $5m (3m).

US firm Engility Holdings paid 71 people held at Abu Ghraib, Baghdad, and other US-run prisons, on behalf of L-3 Services, according to a legal filing found by the Associated Press.

L-3 provided translators to the US military in post-war Iraq.
