London, Oct. 02 – Iran has set up a torture chamber in the Iraqi capital Baghdad where agents of its notorious Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) have “brutally tortured Iraqi youths”, according to a London-based Arab daily.

Iraqi youths are taken at midnight to the centre blindfolded and handcuffed by members of the Badr Brigade, the military wing of the pro-Iranian group Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI), the daily Asharq al-Awsat wrote in its Friday issue.

Iraqis are forced to pay large sums of cash to free relatives detained at the prison.

The daily quoted an Iraqi officer as saying that hundreds of individuals are being held at the detention centre, adding that the building formerly was the headquarters of former Iraqi Interior Minister Fallah Naqib.

“Today, Baghdad is a lawless capital with no government presence and with para-military forces in control”, the daily added.
