Shocking video footage which appears to show British soldiers beating an Iraqi civilian during the investigation into the murder of six of their fellow Servicemen is being examined by the Ministry of Defence.
The attack allegedly left the victim badly hurt, covered in blood and with his jaw ‘literally hanging off’. It was apparently recorded by one of the soldiers wearing a camera attached to his helmet.
An internal probe has begun into the circumstances surrounding the footage. The video was passed to The Mail on Sunday by an Army source, who claims that it was taken by soldiers from the Army’s Intelligence Corps following the killing of six British Military Policemen, known as Red Caps, by an Iraqi mob in 2003, soon after the end of the invasion.
