Collateral Murder

Posted on April 6, 2010 by


On 5th April 2010 WikiLeaks released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad — including two Reuters news staff.

Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded.

We strongly condemn these brutal and  indiscriminate killings by American military and call for an end to War in Iraq and Afghanistan. We also suggest world wide anti-war demonstrations to demand withdrawl of American troops from Afghanistan and Iraq.
