Australian troops unlawfully killed 39 Afghans, report finds
The inquiry said junior soldiers were coerced to shoot a prisoner to achieve the soldier’s first kill, in an practice known as "blooding."

Australian Special Forces troops unlawfully killed 39 prisoners and civilians during the Afghan conflict, a four-year inquiry into alleged Australian war crimes has found.

Australian Defence Force (ADF) chief Angus Campbell apologized to the people of Afghanistan "for any wrongdoing by Australian soldiers," ahead of the release of the damning report on Thursday.

The inquiry by the Inspector-General of the Australian Defence Force (IGADF) investigated 57 incidents and heard from more than 400 witnesses.

It uncovered "deeply disturbing allegations of unlawful killings" and inhuman treatment of detainees in Afghanistan from 2005 to 2016.

Justice Paul Brereton "found there to be credible information to substantiate 23 incidents of alleged unlawful killing of 39 people by 25 Australian Special Forces personnel, predominantly from the Special Air Service Regiment (SAS)," Campbell told reporters in Canberra.
