Al-Jazeera journalist Salah Hassan was tortured by U.S. soldiers inside the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq 10 years ago. To date, no high ranking U.S. official has been held accountable for the tortures that became widely publicized, but Hassan and other former prisoners are attempting to sue CACI International, one of the private contractors that ran the prison.

“Throughout my detainment in the solitary cells, there was an interrogation every two or three days,” Hassan tells “Democracy Now!” on Monday. “During these interrogations, we were subjected to many psychological and physical torture methods. One of these methods was that you are kept naked, handcuffed, the hood on your head, then they would bring a big dog. You hear the panting and barking of the dog very close to your face.”
