UK doctor acted 'dishonestly' in Iraq

Doctor found gulity of dishonest conduct in death of Iraqi arrested by British soldiers in Basra.

    A former British army doctor has been found guilty of dishonest conduct over the death of an Iraqi prisoner.

    The charges against Dr Derek Keilloh date back to 2003, when hotel receptionist Baha Mousa died after being arrested by British soldiers in Basra.

    Mousa suffered 93 seperate injuries while in their custody - but Dr Keilloh had repeatedly denied any knowledge of the injuries.

    Now, a medical watchdog has found him guilty of acting dishonestly - and failing to protect detainees.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Potter reports.
