Infamous Abu Ghraib prison shuts down

The infamous Abu Ghraib prison, where US soldiers created an international scandal by committing human rights violations against Iraqi prisoners, has closed over fears that it could be overtaken by Sunni insurgents, the Iraqi government has announced.

The Iraqi Justice Ministry said in a statement Tuesday that 2,400 inmates had been moved from the facility to other high-security prisons in central and northern Iraq, where the situation outside prison walls is more secure. Abu Ghraib is located to the west of central Baghdad, in an insurgent-controlled region of Anbar Province.

The place should be a museum of torture, for what happened there under Saddam, the Americans and Maliki,” a former prisoner who wished to remain anonymous told the Times on Tuesday.
