Extraordinary footage captured on the helmet camera of an Australian soldier in Afghanistan could result in charges of war crimes.
His death took place within three minutes of the soldiers arriving in the village.
An Australian Defence Force (ADF) investigation later ruled the killing was justified because it was in self-defence.
The killing was one of a series of cases uncovered by Four Corners that may constitute war crimes.
A former member of the same SAS squadron, who was on the 2012 deployment to Afghanistan and has been shown the vision, described the killing to Four Corners as a "straight-up execution".
More on link, plus the video. I haven't seen it, but the Australian Broadcasting Corporation has a graphic content warning on it.
