Abu Ghraib to be turned into a museum
The museum will chronicle the crimes committed under Hussein's rule; government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said in a statement on Thursday that exhibits would include torture chambers and execution materials.
Abu Ghraib was first known as a torture site during Hussein's rule but it also gained publicity in 2004 after photos depicting American soldiers abusing detainees were released. There was no mention in the official announcement whether the abuses by U.S. soldiers will be covered in the museum.
