  2. US troops accused of mistreatment

    Iraq: A US investigation into the death of a soldier from Ohio deployed in Iraq has revealed cruelty and maltreatment by other troops, the military admitted at the weekend.

    Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Olson said a probe into the August 4 death of Private Keiffer Wilhelm had uncovered abuse.

    Four soldiers have been charged with cruelty and maltreatment of colleagues, but Lt Col Olson said there was no direct evidence that the soldiers’ alleged misconduct had caused Private Wilhelm’s death.
