Baghdad, May 22: Fresh images including graphic video of US soldiers beating and humiliating Iraqis rocked the US mission in Iraq again on Friday, days before President George W. Bush lays out his plan to hand back power to Iraqis.

Some prisoners also said troops had forced them to insult Islam.

In the holy city of Kerbala, US aircraft with devastating firepower pounded Shi'ite insurgents whose demands for Americans to go are gaining support among Iraqis frustrated with the occupation.

Marking a growing rift between Washington and its closest Iraqi allies, the Iraq Governing Council roundly condemned the US authority that appointed them for a raid by US troops and Iraqi police on the offices of Council member Ahmad Chalabi
