WASHINGTON, Jan 12 (KUNA) -- US Central Command confirmed late Thursday it was opening an investigation into a video purportedly showing an American soldier firing on a civilian driver in Afghanistan.
The three-minute video surfaced on Youtube appearing to show a member of US special forces in an armored vehicle firing a shotgun at the driver of a passing civilian truck. The amateur video does not show what happened to the driver.
"The amateur video posted on a public website gives us serious concern," the Centcom said in a statement. "The video in question is not official, not authorized and does not represent the professionalism of the service members of US Central Command. We are conducting an investigation into this video, and will take appropriate actions as a result of this investigation." General Joseph Votel, the commander of Centcom, condemned the video, part of a larger montage of video.
"I can assure you that this video does not represent the professionalism or humanity of the men and women of US Central Command. We reject the unprofessional and callous message this video conveys," Votel said. (end) hy.hb
