The videotapes and photographs of naked captives at the prison, west of Baghdad, were consistent with earlier images showing captives naked, with hoods over their heads and posed in sexual situations.

The pictures are reported to include US soldiers almost beating a prisoner to death, the rape of boys by Iraqi guards, American guards having sex with each other and with an Iraqi woman, and a soldier acting inappropriately with a dead body.

New Yorker reporter Seymour Hersh said the pictures were in the possession of a member of the th Military Police Battalion and the people were different from the six military police in the first series of pictures, who have since been charged with criminal offences. Speculation is growing that the use of cameras was deliberate so that other prisoners could be shown the humiliation they could expect if they did not talk.
