An army corporal accused with others of "systematic abuse" of Iraqi civilians yesterday became the first British serviceman to admit a war crime.

Cpl Donald Payne, of 2 Bn, the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, admitted the inhuman treatment of unnamed Iraqi civilians in Basra in September 2003, an offence under the International Criminal Court Act 2001.

He will be sentenced later and could face 30 years.
