The Army reserve unit that became infamous after some of its members were charged with abusing prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison six years ago is returning to Iraq. The Pentagon said Friday that the 372nd Military Police Company of Cresaptown, Md., has been mobilized for its first deployment since 2004, The Associated Press reported.

The 372nd is scheduled to leave April 29 for up to three months of training at Fort Bliss, Texas, followed by deployment overseas.

The unit made headlines around the world when seven of its soldiers faced charges in connection with the mistreatment of detainees at the prison. All were convicted, and six served prison time. A military spokesman said the current unit is made up of few former members.
