    LONDON - Three British servicemen will be tried before a court-martial on war crimes charges for the inhuman treatment of detainees in Iraq, the government said Tuesday.

    The troops face charges under the International Criminal Court Act 2001 in connection with the death of Baha Mousa, 26, a Basra hotel receptionist who died in Sept. 2003 after being arrested and taken to a British military base, the Attorney General Lord Goldsmith announced.
