NCIS Report (Death): 24SEP06-MEIZ-0058-7HMA; Ismail Na-Ama Ahmed, Forward Operating Base (FOB) Haditha, Iraq, September 25, 2006

This is an NCIS investigation into the death of Ismail Na-Ama Ahmed, an Iraqi civilian who died following a beating he received by Iraqi Police (IP) following his arrest and detention at the Echo Company Forward Operating Base (FOB) Haditha, Iraq. Mr. Ahmed was suspected of killing Iraqi Police Officers, and was abused during interrogation. The Marines at the collection center reportedly intervened to stop the beating when they became aware of it, ended the interrogation and stopped the IPs from further abusing Mr. Ahmed. Mr. Ahmed was then placed back in his cell, bleeding and unable to speak. He was attended to three (3) times by US medical personnel throughout the night, but died from his injuries. There is no indication that any US personnel were involved in the abuse or interrogation of Mr. Ahmed. This file contains a Report of Investigation (Open, Sept. 24, 2006) which details the progress of obtaining evidence from the death scene, attempts to interview the IP involved, a synopsis of interviews with Mr. Ahmed's cellmates the night of his death and progress on the autopsy report. The investigating agent reports that they attended the autopsy, and will forward all documents and photos to NCIS Al Asad, once the report is complete.
