Around 15 Iraqis are being flown to the UK to give evidence to the Al-Sweady inquiry following allegations that British soldiers murdered and tortured detainees during the Iraq War.
Starting this week, they will include detainees Madhi Jassim Abdullah and Atiyah Sayid Abdelreza, as well as Mizal Karim Al-Sweady, the father of 19-year-old alleged victim Hamid, who the inquiry is named after.
A further 45 Iraqis are due to give evidence via videolink from Beirut, Lebanon, and evidence from military witnesses is expected to start in September.
The inquiry is unlikely to be finished before the end of next year.
