Tracks by rock band Metallica are being aired by American interrogators in
war-torn Baghdad - in a bid to break Iraqi captives.
Officials say subjecting prisoners to long sessions of "culturally
offensive" heavy metal music encourages them to talk.
The interrogators' favourite tracks include Metallica's ENTER SANDMAN and
the DROWNING POOL song BODIES, from the Vin Diesel action film XXX.
The Metallica tune repeatedly makes the warning, "Sleep with one eye open,
gripping your pillow tight."
Sergeant MARK HADSELL says, "These people haven't heard heavy metal
before. They can't take it."
American officials also use children's music, such as the Sesame Street
theme, and a selection of songs from BARNEY, the jolly purple dinosaur.
