    Iraqis beaten by British troops to face murder charge

    TWO Iraqis filmed being beaten by British troops are set to be charged with attempted murder.

    The Iraqis were reportedly pulled from a mob after home-made grenades were hurled at a British military base in al-Amarah in 2004.

    According to the report, Iraqi officials are keen to reassert their authority over the community amid concerns at growing civil unrest.

    They have said that they intend to prosecute the Iraqi men responsible for throwing the grenades with attempted murder.

    A Whitehall source said that the Iraqi police know who the men are.

    If they are arrested and charged they will be dealt with "far more brutally" by their own people, the source said.
