Soldiers charged over deadly Afghan raid
Updated 7 hours 32 minutes ago
The Director of Military Prosecutions says a former member of Australia’s Special Operations Task Group will be charged with manslaughter following an incident in which four children died last year in Afghanistan.
Three soldiers will be charged with various service offences, including manslaughter, dangerous conduct, failing to comply with a lawful general order and prejudicial conduct.
A Defence spokesman says two of the soldiers are reservists and one is a regular member of the Army.
The charges relate to an incident on February 12, 2009, when six Afghans were killed during an Australian Special Operations Task Group raid targeting an insurgent leader in Uruzgan province.
Four of the dead were small children. Two more children and two adults were also wounded.
