Bales Pleads Guilty To Killing Afghan Civilians

Jun 6, 2013

A military judge has accepted an Ohio soldier's guilty plea in the killing of 16 Afghan civilians during nighttime raids on two villages last year.

The Attorney for U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Robert Bales of Ohio says the Army's decision to seek the death penalty for a massacre in Afghanistan last March is irresponsible.

U.S. Military prosecutors say the soldier accused of killing 16 villagers in Afghanistan returned to his base with the blood of his victims on his rifle, belt, shirt and pants.
