Iraqi government officials have failed to deliver the promised results of an investigation into alleged torture at an Interior Ministry jail in Baghdad.


Deputy Interior Minister Hussein Kamal said that the investigation led by Deputy Prime Minister Rowsh Nuri Shaways was still underway.

An official in Shaways' office said the ministerial committee had not finished its work and needed more time.

US and Iraqi forces discovered 173 malnourished Iraqi detainees when they went into the facility in Baghdad on 13 November.

Some of the inmates showed signs of torture, US and Iraqi officials said.
