More than five years after the American military denied claims that its troops had executed at least 10 Iraqi civilians in cold blood, new evidence has emerged in a WikiLeaks diplomatic cable casting serious doubt on the U.S. version of events .

The Independent newspaper reported, quoting the documents: that Philip Alston, UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial extrajudicial or arbitrary executions, raised the issue in letters to U.S. officials, and challenged the narrative of the incident.
Alston said that the autopsy of the ten civilians, carried out in the nearby city of Tikrit, showed that the victims had been handcuffed and killed by gunshot wounds in the head, including a woman were in the age of seventy, and five-month-old child. He said the Iraqi television stations showed the bodies of five children and four women.
The newspaper pointed out that the U.S. military claimed that soldiers arrested a member of al Qaeda in the first floor of the house after fierce fighting led to the destruction of the house, admitted killing five people in it, before they recognized that the death toll was double that.

In case you cannot view it, here are copied images of the document which I made :
This is another occupation crime of Collateral Murder against Iraqis !
A question directed to the American people:
Are you willing to carry this criminal legacy of your troops which will continue for years to come if America extended its occupation of Iraq ?
You must work to withdraw your troops out of Iraq, otherwise silence makes you accomplices and war criminals as much as your leaders are, and God knows we will never forget these crimes.
Soon we will legally hunt down whoever is responsible for all that has happened in Iraq since 2003 when it was brought under the American occupation .
