US marine says Australian soldiers made 'deliberate decision to break the rules of war' | ABC News

A US marine says Australian special forces shot dead a bound prisoner while on a raid in Afghanistan.

The helicopter crew chief says the Afghan was unlawfully killed, after the commandos were told he would not fit on the US aircraft coming to pick them up.

The alleged killing took place during a joint Australian US raid targeting drug networks that were funding the Taliban.
