UK man 'held without trail in Iraq'
A British man is among thousands being held in Iraq without trial, according to a new Amnesty International report.
The campaign group said 30,000 detainees - many of whom were transferred from US custody - are at risk of torture and mistreatment while being denied proper judicial process.
The wife of Ramze Shihab Ahmed, a dual Iraqi-UK national who claims to have been tortured in Iraq, has called on the Government to increase efforts to secure his release.
Rabiha al-Qassab said her husband has suffered electric shocks to his genitals and suffocation by plastic bag during his time at prisons in Baghdad.
Mr Shihab Ahmed, 68, was arrested in December after travelling to Iraq in an attempt to free his detained son Omar.
His whereabouts were unknown until March, when he was able to make a short phone call to his wife in London.
Rabiha al-Qassab said: "What my husband has suffered at the hands of his interrogators is inhumane and sickening.
"I'm desperately worried about him. He already had health problems before all this and was very brave to return to Iraq on behalf of his son Omar in the first place."
She called on the UK Government to increase its efforts to get her husband released, or at least push for a fair trial.
Amnesty estimates 30,000 detainees are being held without trial in Iraq.
