The ringleader of prisoner abuses at Abu Ghraib jail in Iraq has been released from prison six years into a 10-year sentence.

Charles Graner Jr was freed yesterday from the US Disciplinary Barracks in Kansas and will remain on probation until 2014. Photographs of Graner and other guards posing with corpses and hooded Iraqi prisoners became notorious in 2004, and played a major role in his conviction for conspiracy, assault, maltreating prisoners and indecency.
