Rights report criticises Iraq government

Activists leaving country or going underground as state is blamed for torturing detainees and harassing journalists.

    A new report from Human Rights Watch accuses Iraq's government of abusing protesters and harassing journalists.

    The report says torture continued even as the US military handed detainees over to Iraq before leaving the country last year.
