Abu Ghraib has become synonymous with one of the most notorious chapters of the war in Iraq.

Hundreds of Iraqi prisoners in the US-run prison suffered psychological, physical and sexual abuse that came to light in 2004.

Two of the US army soldiers involved were given prison terms, but no officer was ever jailed. Most of the victims of the abuse have never been compensated.

Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf has the story of one of those prisoners from Baghdad.
