Polish soldiers blow up Afghan dwelling 'for fun'

Polish soldiers blow up Afghan dwelling 'for fun' 13 Aug 2010 A new video has been released of a group of soldiers from the Polish Army blowing up a dwelling in a deserted area of Afghanistan, a move which goes against the Geneva Convention. "What a beauty!" comments one of the soldiers when the building is blown to pieces in the 3-minute video, recorded by Polish soldiers from the Army’s 6th rotation during their tour of duty between October 2009 and April 2010. "It was done for fun," a non-commissioned officer at the time serving in Afghanistan told the Rzeczpospolita daily, adding that there were more deserted buildings in the area, the remains of a village.
