Collateral Murder: Wikileaks releases video of Journalist Shooting
12 Apr 2010 06:07 GMT
WikiLeaks has 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.
The military did not reveal how the Reuters staff were killed, and stated that they did not know how the children were injured. More: Democracy Now Interview | Rochester IMC coverage | Buffalo IMC coverage | collateralmurder.com
