Staff Sergeant Robert Bales: Army Seeks Death Penalty In Afghan Massacre
The US Army has said it will seek the death penalty for a soldier charged in the killing of 16 Afghan villagers during a pre-dawn raid.
Staff Sergeant Robert Bales is accused of going on a shooting rampage in two southern Afghanistan villages on March 11.
Wednesday's announcement followed Bales' pre-trial hearing last month, during which several witnesses testified from Afghanistan via video conference.
