Two Iraqi men have been charged with war crimes by Finnish prosecutors, the Helsinki prosecutor’s office said on Tuesday.
The men are charged in connection with incidents that took place in Iraq in 2014 and 2015 and involved the desecration of bodies, according to Juha-Mikko Hamalainen, the Helsinki district prosecutor in charge. The incidents were not related, he said.
The charges were based on images and information found on the internet, Hamalainen said. Both suspects have denied any wrongdoing.
