British soldiers accused of sickening sex assault on Iraqi boy, 14 — Just days after the MoD has to pay out millions to the father of a man UK soldiers beat to death, fresh claims of abuse rape emerge. British soldiers forced a boy of 14 to carry out an act of oral sex on a fellow male prisoner in Iraq, according to shocking new allegations made about the behaviour of British troops. The Ministry of Defence confirmed yesterday that the Royal Military Police (RMP) have launched an investigation.
The victim, now 19, whom the Independent on Sunday has agreed to identify only as Hassan, says he was rounded up with a friend while trying to steal milk cartons from a food distribution centre. He was whipped, beaten and forced to strip naked. “They made us sit on each other’s laps,” he said. “They were enjoying humiliating and abusing us, I wished I was dead at this moment. Then they made me sit with Tariq … where I was forced to put Tariq’s penis in my mouth. The other two were made to do the same.”
