“U.S. military authorities in Iraq will file a formal complaint against Associated Press photographer Bilal Hussein in the Iraqi court system on Nov. 28, a spokesperson says.

Hussein, an Iraqi, has been held as a security detainee since April 2006, much to the frustration of the AP, which has defended Hussein and argued for his release.

Next week the Multi-National Force in Iraq plans to hand his case over to the Iraqi court system. If the process goes as scheduled, it will be the first time any formal charges have been filed against Hussein. As of Tuesday, officials were still discussing the case against him only in general terms.”
