    A US Court has thrown out a case by four Iraqis who claim they had been tortured in Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad.

    The four want to bring an action against the US defence department contractor who ran the jail.

    The former detainees say they were abused, stripped naked and given electric shocks.
