BAGHDAD: Some 21 children living with their mothers in a Baghdad women's prison represent a potential "time bomb," an Iraqi rights group warned in a report that also noted claims of rape and torture.

The Hammurabi Humanitarian Organisation, headed by ex-migration minister Pascal Wardeh, also detailed conditions at the women's prison in Kadhimiyah, north Baghdad, in which some prisoners suffered physical assault.

It said 21 children were living with their mothers in the detention facility, "suffering a punishment without committing any crime."

"The state must find the means to deal with such cases inside the prison," the report said, noting that the infants "were just spending time with their mothers, listening to their stories."

End.
