The Kandahar Massacre: Sgt. Bales to admit killing of 16 in plea hearing
UPDATE JUNE 2013 - On June 5, the alleged culprit Bales himself will plea guilty in a deal to avoid the death penalty, according to an AP interview with his attorney, John Henry Browne. The plea hearing is to take place at Joint Base Lewis-McChord south of Seattle.
The Kandahar Massacre is considered the most severe war crime blamed on a member of the U.S. Armed Forces since the war in Vietnam. In the early morning hours of March 11, 2012, U.S. Staff Sergeant Robert Bales allegedly killed 16 Afghan civilians in villages near the military camp where he was based.
2470media's Lela Ahmadzai travelled to Afghanistan and spoke to the survivors who lost their closest relatives in the night of Bales' riot. The product of her journey is a documentary that moves the focus away from the suspect and tells the story of the victims whose voices, so far, have remained publicly unheard.
