Film of the bombing of Afghan children to be Wiki leaked
Wednesday 16th June, 2010
WikiLeaks, in announcing its intention in an email to news organisations, said it was working to release secret military footage of the bombing of the Afghan village of Garani in May 2009.
Garani was one of the deadliest US air strikes in Afghanistan, in which 92 children were killed, along with other civilians and some insurgents.
After the Afghan government put the number of dead at 140, American officials admitted mistakes were made during the attack.
The US commander in Afghanistan, General David Petraeus, said a year ago that the military’s video of the Garani attack would be made public, as evidence of a justifiable military assault.
It was not released.
WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, has been on the run from US authorities, who have said they are searching for him to press him not to publish information that could endanger US national security.
Assange is known to travel widely in order to avoid confrontation with government representatives.
