Details of a devastating 250 page document alleging "systematic" war crimes carried out by British troops in Iraq are starting to come to light.
The dossier, presented to the International Criminal Court (ICC), accuses the British military of beatings, electrocution, mock executions and sexual assault.
Evidence from cases of more than 400 Iraqis were presented to the Hague court, representing "thousands of allegations of mistreatment amounting to war crimes of torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment".
If pursued, some of the UK's leading defence figures could face prosecution for war crimes.
The formal complaint to the ICC, lodged on January 11, is the cumulation of several years' work by Public Interest Lawyers (PIL) and the European Centre for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR).
