US Army ’kill team’ in #Afghanistan posed with photos of murdered civilians, via @joujolie
An investigation by Der Spiegel has unearthed approximately 4,000 photos and videos taken by the men.
The magazine, which is planning to publish only three images, said that in addition to the #crimes the men were on trial for there are “also entire collections of pictures of other victims that some of the defendants were keeping”.
US army tried to hide the pictures from the public and only apologised for the “distress” caused... Not for the barbaric actions:
In a statement, the army said it apologised for the distress caused by photographs “depicting actions repugnant to us as human beings and contrary to the standards and values of the United States”.
