US Marines probing video of American forces urinating on corpses of Taleban fighters in Afghanistan

WASHINGTON (REUTERS) - The United States Marine Corps said on Wednesday it would investigate a video showing what appears to be American forces in Afghanistan urinating on the bodies of dead Taleban fighters. The video, which was posted on YouTube and other websites, shows four men in camouflage combat uniforms urinating on the bodies of three dead Taleban. One of them jokes: 'Have a nice day, buddy.' The other makes a lewd joke about a shower. A copy of the video can be seen at http: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TMq3m-Oli4 'While we have not yet verified the origin or authenticity of this video, the actions portrayed are not consistent with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the Marines in our Corps,' the Marines said in a statement.
