WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. military is investigating a video posted on an Internet website showing what appears to be a U.S. service member shooting at a civilian truck while driving in Afghanistan.
A U.S. official says the weapons and equipment in the video suggest it could involve U.S. special operations forces and was likely taken last March. The official spoke anonymously to discuss details of the ongoing investigation.READ MORE: WATCH: A Sneak Peek Of The Highly-Anticipated Academy Museum
U.S. Central Command says the video posted on YouTube triggered serious concerns. Army Gen. Joseph Votel, head of the command, says he is disappointed in the video, and is concerned that the American people and the Afghans will believe U.S. troops “are callous and indifferent” to the suffering of innocent people.READ MORE: Driver Killed, 5 Injured In El Monte Shooting, Crash
