It was the day of freedom for 300 detainees at Baghdad's notorious Abu Ghraib prison...
Many flashed "V" for victory signs as their buses pulled away.
Their welcome home was joyous. From anxious relatives who'd worried about their fate. Many of the detainees, however, did have tales of abuse. Pisoner detailing abuse: "They stripped me and kept me naked, this man said. They beat me and sprayed cold water on me." Another claimed he was forced to strip naked in front of female guards.

Graner to a general courtmartial. Graner faces 7 charges including adultry. Elsewhere in Iraq, rebel cleric Muktada al Sadr managed to slip past U-S tanks and checkpoints to travel from Najaf to nearby Kufa, where he delivered his weekly sermon. He blasted the U.S. and claimed the beheading of American Nicholas Berg was fabricated to draw attention away from the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal. In Najaf and Karbala, al Sadr's forces fought fierce battles with U-S troops. At a vast cemetary in Najaf, fighters are said to be hiding in underground catacombs. The U-S military had hoped to avoid incursions into such holy sites, but the offensive there appears to indicate it's patience is running out. And in a further heightening of the tenion, al Sadr's men also warned U.S. forces to stay out of the city of Nasiriya. The war here is far from over. Cami McCormick, CBS News Baghdad))
