Plea deal for Haditha killings sparks outrage in Iraq

6 years ago180 views

Iraqis are angry at how court martial hearings have ended over the killing of 24 civilians in the city of Haditha in 2005.

The last of the eight marine defendants is awaiting sentencing after a deal in which he pleaded guilty to reduced charges of dereliction of duty.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of three months in a military jail.
