An army officer from Lancashire whose troops were filmed apparently beating Iraqi teenagers has been cleared of failing to control his men.
Major Faux was cleared by the MoD
A Ministry of Defence (MoD) inquiry found Major James Faux, from Preston, was not involved in the beatings which happened after rioting in Al Amarah.
A film leaked to a newspaper showed soldiers from the 1st Batallion Light Infantry apparently striking youths.
An MoD spokesman said it would not comment on individual cases.
The video footage, which was filmed during several days of rioting in 2004, came to light in February 2006.
None of the soldiers faced criminal charges - one was disciplined internally by the army, but the rest were cleared.
Major Faux is now stationed in Germany.
