Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - World -

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.
