The U.S. Department of Defense on Friday released 198 pictures related to U.S. military abuse of detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan. The photos show body parts, some with visible torture signs and injuries.
The American Civil Liberties Union has been fighting since 2004 for the release of what it says are 2,000 photos documenting abuse at U.S. detention centers.
The Pentagon says the photos come from independent criminal investigations into allegations of misconduct by U.S. personnel. Those investigations allegedly led to disciplinary action for 65 service members.
