Three sailors charged with abusing Iraq prisoners ("Abused" them to death)
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/2004...

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Three Navy SEAL commandos have been charged with aggravated assault and other offenses in connection with the alleged mistreatment of two prisoners who died in US military custody in Iraq (news - web sites), US defense officials said.


The Navy's Special Warfare Command in San Diego, California announced the action, which raised to seven the number of Navy SEALS charged in connection with the deaths of detainees in Iraq.


"Three sailors attached to Naval Special Warfare Command face disciplinary actions based on evidence obtained during an ongoing investigation into alleged detainee abuse in Iraq from October 2003 to April 2004," the command said in a statement.


The charges include maltreatment of detainees, assault, aggravated assault with intent to cause death or serious bodily harm, and assault with a dangerous weapon, it said.
