'Hundreds' of alleged abuses in Afghanistan being investigated

UK military investigating hundreds of alleged abuses in Afghanistan | UK news | The Guardian: 
The investigation, known as Operation Northmoor, based in Newquay, Cornwall, employs 124 RMP soldiers, according to the MoD. One of the cases is understood to involve Serdar Mohammed, who was captured by UK soldiers in April 2010, but not handed over to the Afghan security services until July that year, despite regulations requiring any transfer to take place within 96 hours.
Mohammed was eventually released to return to his home in Helmand province. He claimed that the Afghan authorities tortured him.
