U.S. Forces Afghanistan
KABUL, Afghanistan -- 05.20.2010 United States Forces-Afghanistan has launched a criminal investigation into allegations that a small number of U.S. soldiers were responsible for the unlawful deaths of as many as three Afghan civilians.
There are also allegations of illegal drug use, assault and conspiracy.
No charges have been preferred at this time; however, one soldier has been placed in pre-trial confinement.
The Army's Criminal Investigation Command initiated their investigation after receiving credible information from the Soldiers' unit earlier this month.
USFOR-A is committed to the security and safety of the Afghan population and will ensure any crimes are investigated fully and those responsible will be held accountable.
