Prisoner or: How I Planned To Kill Tony Blair, The

Petra Epperlein

In September 2003, the U.S. Army arrested an Iraqi journalist, Yunis Khatayer Abbas and his brothers. For nine months they were held in the Abu Ghraib prison on suspicion of planning to kill the British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Yunis had been arrested during the regime of Saddam Hussein. In The Prisoner he recounts calmly and not without relativizing and humor how he was arrested again this time by the U.S. Army. Some of the more shocking elements of his story are portrayed by comic book drawings by Petra Epperlein.
