BAGHDAD -- Abu Ghraib prison, a symbol of terror for Iraqis under Saddam Hussein that later became notorious for the abuse of prisoners by U.S. guards, is to be turned into a warehouse, Iraq's justice minister said yesterday.

The U.S. military said Thursday it planned to end its operations at the prison in three months. Some U.S. officials suggested Iraqi authorities might continue to use it as a jail. But Justice Minister Abd al-Hussein Shandel told Reuters news agency it will just be used as "a storage facility for the Justice Ministry."
