(Telegraph-UK) George Jones and Michael Smith - Photographs published by the Daily Mirror allegedly showing British soldiers abusing an Iraqi captive "were categorically not taken in Iraq," Adam Ingram, the Armed Forces minister, told MPs Thursday. Ingram said the lorry in which the pictures were taken "was never in Iraq." According to military sources, the incidents were staged at Kimberley Barracks, Preston. Ingram told MPs that a two-week investigation by the Royal Military Police Special Investigation Branch concluded definitely that they were fake and it had independent corroboration that they were not taken in Iraq.
