Did NZ commit war crimes?

In Afghanistan in August 2010, New Zealand Defence Forces raided two villages, allegedly leaving 21 civilians wounded and dead. Among them was a three-year-old girl who died in her mother’s arms.

These are the serious and damning allegations in a new book on the New Zealand-led raid in Afghanistan. If true, the New Zealand Defence Force would have seriously breached international law and may be guilty of war crimes.

Amnesty International is calling for a thorough and independent investigation to determine whether war crimes have been committed and whether New Zealand is responsible.
