WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video which it says depicts the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad -- including two Reuters news staff.
According to WikiLeaks Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. WikiLeaks says the video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers.
