Prison Deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan
According to the AP, at least 108 people have died while held in U.S. custody in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Most deaths were violent and some 25% are being investigated as possible abuse by US personnel, the agency said.
At least 26 deaths have been investigated as homicides, a figure that calls into question the government's contention that only a few rogue soldiers are to blame for prisoner abuse.
The American Civil Liberties Union said it was "unacceptable" that no-one at the highest levels of government had been held accountable for the abuses.
