US soldier jailed 2 months in Afghan abuse

In December 2002, [Afghan detainee] Dilawar died at the base – after suffering what an internal US investigation revealed were repeated beatings by American troops while chained to the ceiling by his wrists.
The BBC correspondent in Kabul, Andrew North, says two other soldiers have also been convicted in connection with the case, but neither were jailed – including one who faced more serious charges.
The New York-based group Human Rights Watch said the two month prison sentence given to Specialist Wells was very disappointing.
