The Iraqi army and US-led multinational forces violated international law during military operations in western Iraq last month by arresting doctors and occupying medical facilities, a UN report said Monday. The five-page report, from the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq, said military operations by the two forces had "a negative impact on human rights" and cited figures that more than 10,000 families have been displaced in two restive provinces, Anbar and Nineveh, alone. The review focused on several areas, including the overall human rights situation, detention and rule of law. It said there were 23,394 detainees in Iraq, with 11,559 of them held by multinational forces.
