The Daily Mirror asks for evidence

I've just watched Channel 4 TV news. Jon Snow interviewed Defence Secretary Hoon who confirmed he believed the pictures published by the Daily Mirror, said to show British troops abusing prisoners, were a hoax. The Daily Mirror contacted Channel 4 while it was on air and called for evidence.

Update: Military sources later made clear they believed they had positively identified the actual truck - not just the type - shown in the Mirror's pictures. The vehicle is in the UK and had never been sent to Iraq, they said.

Piers Morgan, Editor of the Daily Mirror does not accept that the Ministry of Defence has proved these photographs are faked and he accuses government of diversion tactics.
