The abuse included throwing a prisoner "to the ground striking him on the head and legs as he walked to the in-processing tent" and holding a prisoner's "legs apart and encouraging other soldiers to kick him, while other US soldiers kicked him in the groin, face and abdomen," throwing prisoner "to the ground on his face and stepping on his previously injured arm," and "twisting his previously injured arm, causing him to scream in pain." Testimony from accused, fellow soldiers, prisoners and CID Agent.
