In pictures: New Abu Ghraib images
These previously unpublished images show apparent US abuse of prisoners in Iraq’s Abu Ghraib jail in 2003.
The images are said to be from the same source as those that led to several US troops being jailed. Some of the new images are too gruesome to be shown.
A number of the images are versions of the photographs that caused outrage when they were initially leaked.
US civil liberties groups are calling for a fresh inquiry into the abuses.
Several of the images concern sexual humiliation of prisoners .
The pictures have been broadcast by Arabic television stations and may further inflame Arab anger.
There are few images of identifiable US soldiers.

Images of Iraqis at infamous prison taken 3 years ago
New images came to light Wednesday showing Iraqis abused by U.S. guards at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison three years ago.
The photos of naked prisoners, some bloodied and lying on the floor, were taken about the same time as earlier photos that triggered a worldwide scandal and led to military trials and prison sentences for several lower-ranking U.S. soldiers.
Many of the pictures broadcast Wednesday by Australia’s Special Broadcasting Service, including some that appear to show corpses, were more graphic than those previously published. One of the video clips depicted a group of naked men with bags over their heads standing together and masturbating. The network said they were forced to participate.
