HUNTING AND KILLING IN AFGHANISTAN September 6, 2011Posted by wmmbb in CENTRAL ASIA.
Human beings are been hunted and killed by Australian military forces in Uruzgan Province of Afghanistan.
ABC News Online reports:
Innocent people are being killed or forced to flee in fear as Australian special forces teams hunt Taliban commanders in southern Afghanistan, ABC TV’s Four Corners has been told.
About 300 elite Australian soldiers are hunting down Taliban commanders in Uruzgan individually, targeting them one by one.
But Afghan civilians’ families have told Four Corners innocent people are being killed or forced to flee their homes in fear as the Australians move through different areas, and analysts say the approach is not effective.
The Australian Defence Force says its tactics are appropriate and are constantly reviewed to try to minimise the loss of life and impact on Afghan civilians.
The killing of any civilians is a war crime. The prosecution of war may not be legal.
