Soldiers charged with drowning Iraqi prisoners
Xinhua News Agency |
"Three US soldiers returning back from Iraq have been charged in connection with the drowning of an Iraqi detainee in January, the military said on Friday. The drowning occurred in the Iraqi city of Samarra, near Baghdad, when the soldiers on patrol at that time forced the Iraqi to jump off a bridge. A fourth soldier has also been charged for forcing a second Iraqi to jump off the bridge. Both the two Iraqis were civilians that had been detained for a curfew violation. Two of the soldiers, First Lieutenant Jack Saville and Sergeant First Class Tracy Perkins, were charged on June 7 with manslaughter, assault, conspiracy, false statements and obstruction of justice."
