Full Story

Street battle shown
The footage purportedly shows a street confrontation in which Iraqi youths throw objects at British soldiers and then flee down the street. The cameraman provides narration and urges the soldiers on.

The soldiers apparently chase the Iraqis, catch at least three and drag them through a gate into a fenced in areas, according to the footage. The civilians are then pulled to the ground and beaten by at least five alleged British soldiers with batons and fists.

One of the civilians has his shirt ripped off.

The footage then shows what appears to be another group of soldiers dragging in another civilian and beating him with batons.

I'll hold comment until all the facts are in.
This could be a case of unprofessional conduct, or it could be the media trying to make something out of nothing.

Is that the video where the guy filming sounds like he's blowing a load in his BDU's and calls them "naughty boys" and what not?

edit: yep thats it, i only saw a short version. About halfway through that video is the guy I'm talking about.
