UK Military Academy Probes Waterboarding Claim

Saturday, 18 August 2018 08:37 AM

LONDON (AP) — Authorities at Britain's Sandhurst military academy say they are investigating allegations that two cadets waterboarded another at the officer-training school.

The Sun newspaper reported Saturday that two officer cadets pinned down another, covered his face with a cloth and poured water over it. The practice is considered torture by the British government.

Sandhurst's commander, Brigadier Bill Wright, says he has ordered the Royal Military Police to investigate the allegations.

Wright says "the Army and I expect the highest standards of behavior at Sandhurst; anyone found to have fallen short is dealt with robustly, including dismissal, if appropriate."

Sandhurst, 30 miles (50 kilometers) southwest of London, has trained British army officers for more than 200 years. Its former cadets include Prince William and Prince Harry.
