Two US soldiers have been charged with the premeditated murder of three Iraqi citizens, the US military said Wednesday. The two men, Sergeant Michael Williams and Specialist Brent May, are members of the 1st Cavalry Division, which has been operating in and around Baghdad.
Williams has also been charged with obstruction of justice and making a false official statement. The statement said that no further specifics would be revealed until the Army's Criminal Investigation Division has an opportunity to look into the matter. Read the US Central Command statement here.
