Britain Pays Compensation to Iraqis - I wonder how much we HAVE paid?
We broke it, we DON'T own it, but WE HAVE TO PAY FOR IT!!!!!



LONDON - Britain has paid compensation to Iraqis for more than 120 incidents involving death, injury or property damage in the British-occupied south of the country, the government said Monday.

In a House of Commons written answer, Defense Minister Adam Ingram said the compensation cases included one death in detention, six deaths in road accidents and 11 people with injuries sustained during arrest. Twenty-four compensation cases involved property damage and 57 were for damage to vehicles in road accidents.

Ingram did not give details of the financial settlements or a total payout figure.

In May, the government said it had paid compensation for three deaths, including $3,000 to the family of Baha Mousa, a Basra hotel receptionist who died after allegedly being beaten by British troops in September.
