BAGHDAD - A detainee died Thursday from injuries after apparently being assaulted by other inmates at a U.S. detention facility in Baghdad, the U.S. military said.
The detainee, whose name and nationality were not released, was pronounced dead by doctors at Camp Bucca, U.S.-run prison in Iraq's southern desert, the statement said. The incident is under investigation, the statement said, without providing details.
In Iraq, the U.S. Army is holding thousands of prisoners at Camp Cropper near Baghdad airport, Camp Bucca in the southern desert, and Fort Suse in the Kurdish north.
