US opens Afghan deaths tribunal

An Afghan report said the
US marines used
indiscriminate force

The US Marine Corps has opened a special tribunal into the deaths of Afghan civilians last March.

As many as 19 Afghan civilians were allegedly killed when marines opened fire in Nangarhar province after their convoy was attacked by a car bomb.

An Afghan inquiry said the US troops opened fire indiscriminately but the marines said they were fired on and the civilians were caught in the crossfire.

interrogations of two al-Qaeda suspects. It follows
last month’s preliminary joint inquiry with the CIA
into whether a full investigation was necessary.
Critics have accused the CIA of a cover-up to hide
evidence of possible torture and abuse of detainees.
