News: US soldiers executed handcuffed and blindfolded Iraqis

In March or April 2007, three noncommissioned United States Army officers, including a first sergeant, a platoon sergeant and a senior medic, killed four Iraqi prisoners with pistol shots to the head as the men stood handcuffed and blindfolded beside a Baghdad canal, two of the soldiers said in sworn statements obtained by The New York Times.

After the killings, they removed the men’s bloody blindfolds and plastic handcuffs, shoved the four bodies into the canal, rejoined other members of their unit waiting in nearby vehicles and drove back to their combat outpost in southwest Baghdad. (Full)
