THE US Marine Corps said today it would investigate a video that has surfaced on the internet, purporting to show US servicemembers urinating on dead Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.
In the video, four men in Marine uniforms and combat gear are shown exposing their genitals and urinating on three dead bodies. One of the deceased has large blood stain on his chest.
The person who posted the video included a description that reads "scout sniper team 4 with 3rd battalion 2nd marines out of camp lejeune peeing on dead Talibans."
One of the service members can be heard saying in the recording, "Have a great day, buddy."
The Marine Corps said in a statement today that it "has recently been made aware of a video that portrays Marines urinating on what appear to be deceased members of the Taliban."
