ISAF flays desecration of rebel corpses

ISAF flays desecration of rebel corpses

KABUL (PAN): The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) on Thursday denounced a video showing US military personnel committing an inappropriate act with rebel corpses.

"This disrespectful act is inexplicable and not in keeping with the high moral standards we expect of coalition forces," the NATO-led force said of the video, in which Marines are urinating on fighters' corpses.

"ISAF strongly condemns the actions depicted in the video, which appear to have been conducted by a small group of US individuals, who apparently are no longer serving in Afghanistan," a statement from the force said.

It added the military personnel's behaviour dishonored the sacrifices and core values of every service member representing the 50-nation coalition.

"Therefore, a United States Criminal Investigatory agency has launched an investigation. It will be thorough and any individuals with confirmed involvement will be held fully accountable," the statement concluded.
