Amnesty International's report on Iraq

Amnesty International has released a report detailing ongoing human rights
abuses in Iraq (  AI's
recommendations follow, and note that sanctions are mentioned (though
briefly, and in the vaguest possible terms):

"Amnesty International is making a number of recommendations to the Iraqi
Government. This includes:
-adopting the necessary legal and practical measures to ensure effective
implementation of all the provisions contained in international human rights
treaties ratified by Iraq;
-releasing all political detainees held without charge or trial if they are
not to be promptly charged with any recognizable criminal offence; and
-stopping the policy of forcible expulsions of non-Arab families. 

Amnesty International also believes that the Security Council, as the body
that has imposed sanctions on Iraq, should give urgent attention to the
humanitarian situation in Iraq, and take all necessary measures to protect
the rights of the Iraqi population."
