Videos Amplify Picture of Violence
Friday, May. 21, 2004; 7:00 AM

Editor's Note: Images in this video may be disturbing because of their violent or graphic nature.

The edited video excerpt is from a collection of short digital video files obtained by The Washington Post. The videos appear to show U.S. soldiers abusing detainees last fall in Abu Ghraib prison.

In this video, soldiers are shown apparently attempting to arrange a human pyramid with naked Iraqi prisoners -- a scene similar to those also shown in previously obtained photographs.

The video, which was originally recorded sideways, has been edited to display vertically here and certain body parts have been obscured. The brightness of the video, which appeared to have been recorded in low light, was increased as well.
