Videos showing deaths in Iraq available online
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Scattered among the humour and music videos on popular websites such asYouTube and Google Video are graphic images of soldiers and civilians being killed in Iraq.
YouTube officials told the NewYork Times newspaper they remove those images when they are aware of them but the clips are continuously posted and easy to find. A video labelled: “Sniper dedicates 9 bullets to Bush” shows an insurgent picking off U.S. soldiers. It’s unclear whether the soldiers survived.
The sites also include many images of U.S. soldiers killing Iraqis.
YouTube officials did not immediately return telephone calls seeking comment.
