Another image shows that the man, an Iraqi prisoner, is naked. His hands are clasped behind his neck and he is leaning against the door to a cell, contorted with terror, as the dogs bark a few feet away.

Other photographs show the dogs straining at their leashes and snarling at the prisoner.

In another, taken a few minutes later, the Iraqi is lying on the ground, withering in pain, with a soldier sitting on top of him, knee pressed to his back.

Blood is streaming from the inmate’s leg.

Another photograph is a closeup of the naked prisoner, from his waist to his ankles, lying on the floor.

On his right thigh is what appears to be a bite or a deep scratch.

There is another, larger wound on his left leg, covered in blood.”
