Iraq urged to probe US rape and murder charges
The Daily Telegraph | Iraq urged to probe US murder charges:
A FEMALE Iraqi politician called for a probe by local authorities in the alleged rape and murder of a woman and three members of her family by US soldiers.
Safiya al-Sehel, from former pro-Western premier Iyad Allawi's Iraqi National List, demanded an investigation into the incident that occurred on March 12 near the town of Mahmudiyah, south of Baghdad.
'We call upon the prime minister and the interior minister to launch a probe by Iraqi authorities into this crime and punish those responsible as this is an issue of Iraqi honour,' Ms Sehel told reporters.
