Iraqis protest torture by new govt, poor reporting

Today, protests by over 1000 Sunnis against torture and sectarian policies will be briefly mentioned in a Reuters story about a suicide bombing. According to the paragraph, "simulating torture, they [the protestors] dressed up as soldiers and used drills (see use of drills for knee-capping here), wooden clubs and electric wires to act out what they said were the techniques used by government forces against them."

Interestingly, the Reuters report states that "the government has denied similar accusations", despite the fact that the government admitted them 26 days ago at an internationally reported press conference.

Hey Nice job on the Site ! The reason I stopped at yours is to get ideas for the one I'm putting up called,Back Pain, which naturally covers back pain statistics and similar areas. I liked the way yours was laid out and appreciate some of the ideas. ---Jack---
