More Abu Ghraib Pictures

MORE ABU GHRAIB PICTURES….The Australian program Dateline claims to have 60 previously unpublished photos from Abu Ghraib:

Some of the photos are similar to those published in 2004, others are different. They include photographs of six corpses, although the circumstances of their deaths are not clear. There are also pictures of what appear to be burns and wounds from shotgun pellets.

Dateline airs on Wednesday evening in Australia, which is early Wednesday morning on the U.S. East Coast. Their website has one new picture up now, and presumably they will post more of them after the show airs. They say that the photos are among those that were shown privately to members of Congress shortly after the original Abu Ghraib story broke.

UPDATE: The Sydney Morning Herald has 15 of the 60 pictures here.
