An Iraqi man remembers the day he was driven to what appeared to be an abandoned farmhouse, referred to as the “yellow house” by survivors, and locked in a small room with tens of other detainees.
“There was blood on the walls. Torture started immediately. They hit us with anything they could lay their hands on, metal rods, shovels, pipes, cables. They walked on top of us with their boots,” he said. “I saw two people die before my eyes.”
