    A US soldier has pleaded guilty to the murders of three unarmed Afghan civilians.

    Jeremy Morlock faces more than 20 years in prison for his part in a series of incidents that targeted civilians in Afghanistan.

    He has admitted using illegally obtained Afghan weapons to make it appear that the victims were enemy combatants.
