Allegations British soldiers unlawfully killed Iraqi civilians a decade ago are not supported by evidence heard by a public inquiry investigating their deaths, a lawyer acting for the families of the dead told the Al-Sweady Inquiry in London today.
The inquiry has been examining claims that UK soldiers murdered 20 or more Iraqis, and tortured detainees after the "Battle of Danny Boy" in Maysan Province, southern Iraq, in May 2004.
