Disturbing Video Condemned By Afghanistan

This article is more than 9 years old.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai is calling a video that purports to depict four U.S. Marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters "completely inhumane."

A Taliban spokesman is also condemning the video but says it will not derail peace talks with the US, a process the White House hopes to re-start next week. Pentagon officials said commanders believe they have identified the men's unit and that it is back in the United States.
