Associated Press and other news sources report:
A UN expert called torture in Iraq “totally out of hand,” adding, “the situation is so bad many people say it is worse than it has been in the times of Saddam Hussein.”
He added, “That means something, because the torture methods applied under Saddam Hussein were the worst you could imagine.”
A report released by the UN states that bodies in the Baghdad morgue “often bear signs of severe torture.”
