Wounded Iraqi is given £2m payout
There have been an increasing number of reports of payouts for civilian deaths and injuries in Iraq.
An Iraqi teenager accidentally shot by a British soldier is to receive £2m, the Ministry of Defence has confirmed.
The man - who cannot be named for legal reasons - will receive the payout after suffering severe spinal injuries which have left him paralysed.
The compensation is higher than anything paid to any British troops injured in Iraq.
The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the payout was "not a precedent, it is an exceptional case"
