Three former soldiers charged over deaths of Afghan civilians, including five children
THREE former soldiers have been charged over an operation in Afghanistan in which six civilians died - five of them children.
The charges laid by the Director of Military Prosecutions against the former commandos, who were members of the Special Operations Task Group, include manslaughter and dangerous conduct.

Two of the former commandos say they will strenuously defend themselves.

The charges relate to a “compound clearance operation” on February 12, 2009, when commandos conducted a night-time raid on a residential compound in Oruzgan province where they believed a Taliban leader was hiding.

Of the six who died, five were children, while two adults and two children were also wounded.

Defence previously has said the deaths occurred as the soldiers conducted clearance operations using gunfire and hand grenades.

It is alleged the commandos attacked the wrong house.
