U.S. troops sealed detainees in room filled with pepper spray.

Six U.S. sailors working as prison guards at Camp Bucca in southern Iraq have been charged with assault and are facing courts martial for allegedly sealing eight detainees in a pepper-spray filled cell. Two detainees also suffered “minor abrasions” after being beaten by the sailors, although no bones were broken. The assaults occurred on May 14, “after some guards had been spat at and had human waste thrown at them by detainees.”
