British troops will face fresh charges of breaching international law over the alleged torture and killing of prisoners during the war in Iraq.

New allegations will be revealed during a hearing at the High Court in London on Tuesday.

Lawyers for over 100 Iraqis who claim they are victims of abuse will place a file of statements before two judges, accusing British soldiers and intelligence officers of unlawful practices.
