A leading human rights group has called for a full inquiry into allegations of rape and sexual abuse at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq after a report in The Daily Telegraph revealed the existence of photographic evidence.

The demand from New York-based Human Rights Watch followed a The Daily Telegraph report this week. Major General Antonio Taguba, a former senior US officer who conducted an internal inquiry at the prison, confirmed that he had seen photos which appear to depict a soldier raping a female prisoner and a male translator raping a male prisoner as well as the use of objects in sexual abuse.

Scott Horton, a leading US human rights lawyer, wrote on the Daily Beast website on Friday that he had “obtained specific corroboration of the British account from several reliable sources, including a highly credible senior military officer with firsthand knowledge, who provided even more detail about the graphic photographs”.

He alleged the photographs included graphic scenes including a uniformed soldier performing a sexual act with a female prisoner.
