No good deed goes unpunished

Go to dinner with the wrong people in Iraq and the Americans lock you away without charge, it seems - even if you helped them.

After months of raids by American soldiers, more than 10,000 Iraqis are in U.S. custody in Iraq. Entire families, including children as young as 11 and men as old as 75, have been swept into detention. Most are denied the right to lawyers or trials. Many are believed to be innocent. A recent U.S. review recommended that 963 of 1,166 detainees should be released.

"Operation Iraqi Freedom", one year on.
