Britain’s military said on Wednesday it had launched an investigat­ion after soldiers were filmed apparently using a picture of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn for target practice.

Footage posted on social media showed members of the Parachute Regiment in Afghanista­n shooting at an image of Corbyn, Britain’s main opposition leader. The British Army said the apparent behavior “is totally unacceptab­le. A full investigat­ion has been launched.”

Labour defense spokeswoma­n Nia Griffith tweeted that the video was “shocking and completely unacceptab­le.”
