LONDON (AFP) - Cellphones fitted with digital cameras have been banned in US 
army installations in Iraq (news - web sites) on orders from Defense Secretary 
Donald Rumsfeld, a business newspaper reported. 
Quoting a Pentagon (news - web sites) source, The Business newspaper said the 
US Defense Department believes that some of the damning photos of US soldiers 
abusing Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad were taken with camera 
"Digital cameras, camcorders and cellphones with cameras have been prohibited 
in military compounds in Iraq," it said, adding that a "total ban throughout 
the US military" is in the works. 
Disturbing new photos of Iraqi prisoner abuse, which the US government had 
reportedly tried to keep hidden, were published Friday in the Washington Post
