US 'kill team' targeted Afghan civilians

US 'kill team' targeted Afghan civilians 26 Aug 2010 Five US soldiers are charged with deliberately targeting Afghan civilians amid growing discontent over the rising civilian causalities in the war-torn country. The troopers allegedly killed three Afghans in Kandahar Province this year and they were charged with murder in June. Since then, US army prosecutors have also filed additional charges of conspiracy to commit premeditated murder -- a plot that allegedly began when one soldier discussed how easy it would be to "toss a grenade" at Afghan civilians, The Seattle Times reported on Thursday. One of the soldiers had reportedly formed what has been called a "kill team" to randomly execute Afghan civilians while on petrol.
