Caged with Lions
Two Iraqi businessmen who were imprisoned by U.S. forces in Iraq, claim they were thrown into a cage of lions in a Baghdad palace for interrogation in 2003, reports The Associated Press.
The two men described the day in 2003 when they were arrested by American troops with guns and armored vehicles, their heads covered with plastic hoods. They both described standing in front of a lion cage, and said they could hear other prisoners screaming as the metal cage door creaked open and slammed shut.
Saddam Hussein's eldest son, Odai, kept lions in his compound at the presidential palace, which was taken over by U.S. troops during the war.
