Human rights lawyers have outlined allegations by hundreds of Iraqis that they were mistreated by British forces.

More than 400 claims by Iraqis are now being presented in a dossier to the International Criminal Court.

Alleged abuses include sleep and food deprivation, physical assault, electrocution, mock executions and threats of rape.

Britain's Ministry of Defence has issued a statement saying the matters are under thorough investigation. It also rejected claims that the UK's armed forces systematically tortured detainees.
