Court finds UK war crimes in Iraq


The International Criminal Court says it will not take action against the UK, despite finding evidence British troops committed war crimes in Iraq.

A 180-page report says hundreds of Iraqi detainees were abused by British soldiers between 2003 and 2009.

But the ICC could not determine whether the UK had acted to shield soldiers from prosecution.

The MoD said the ICC report "vindicates our efforts to pursue justice where allegations have been founded".
