UK soldiers found guilty of Iraq abuse

Two British soldiers have been found guilty of charges relating to abusing Iraqi civilians in a court martial hearing in Osnabrueck, Germany.

    Tony Blair has called the pictures 'appalling'

    A third soldier had already pleaded guilty to one charge of

    assault after he was pictured standing on an Iraqi.

    The abuse took place after British troops rounded up looters who

    were taking powdered milk from a humanitarian aid depot known as

    Camp Bread Basket, near the southern Iraqi city of Basra in May


    Judge Advocate Michael Hunter said on Wednesday that the most

    senior of the three,

    Corporal Daniel Kenyon, 33, who was found guilty on two charges of

    failing to report that soldiers under his command had abused Iraqis,

    would face a jail sentence of up to two years.

    Sentencing was postponed until Friday.

    Iraqis were outraged when the
    pictures emerged

    The seven British officers acting as a jury in the court martial

    found Lance Corporal Mark Cooley, 25, guilty of suspending an Iraqi

    from a forklift truck and of simulating a punch on an Iraqi.


    judge told him he faces up to two years in prison.

    Lance Corporal Darren Larkin, 30, had pleaded guilty to assault

    after he was pictured standing on an Iraqi and faces a possible

    six-month prison sentence.

    British Prime Minister Tony Blair has described photographs of

    the abuse taken by soldiers as "shocking and appalling".
