UK Investigates New Allegation of Abuse in Iraq
By Peter Graff

LONDON (Reuters) - A British soldier came forward on Thursday with new charges of mistreatment of prisoners in Iraq, potentially drawing Washington's closest ally deeper into abuse allegations that have hurt the reputation of the United States.

"We can confirm that an individual who's come forward to the Daily Mirror (newspaper) with allegations has spoken to Royal Military Police this evening," a British Ministry of Defense spokesman said.

He said several investigations into charges of abuse were already under way and it was not clear if the new allegations, made by a serving soldier in the territorial army (reserves), referred to incidents that were already being probed.

The Daily Mirror's editor, Piers Morgan, told BBC television that his newspaper would publish the allegations in its edition on Friday, after a soldier approached the paper.

"By the time this is broadcast, he (the soldier) will be with the Royal Military Police at his own request, where he will be giving them potential evidence, including the full detail of his dossier citing at least four separate incidents of what he describes as appalling beatings meted out to PoWs," Morgan said.

"He will also be naming the names of the people responsible including corporals and sergeants and some senior officers who he says were culpable in tacitly allowing this to happen."
