Washington, D.C.

The Army has decided not to prosecute 17 soldiers implicated in the deaths of three prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan. Investigators had recommended charges ranging from murder and conspiracy to negligent homicide. Prosecutors decided one of the cases involved the legal use of force, and that the others lacked evidence to support the charges. At least 28 prisoners have been killed in U.S. custody in Iraq and Afghanistan. Twenty-one soldiers are being charged in the cases, only one of which occurred at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq.
