Sunnis outraged at claims of Iraqi Army shock and smother torture of detainees

AP writers Sinan Salaheddin and Qassim Abdul-Zahra report today that Iraqi officials are investigating claims that detainees, believed to be mostly Sunnis, were tortured at a makeshift prison in Baghdad, in a case that has outraged the country's Sunni minority.

An Iraqi who said he was in the prison described being beaten, tortured with electric shocks and smothered with a plastic bag.

Three army officers have been arrested in connection with the case.

Will this be the spark that ignites the fires?
