Jeremy Morlock, 23, tells US military court he was part of a 'kill team' that faked combat situations to murder Afghan civilians.

An American soldier has pleaded guilty to being part of a "kill team" who deliberately murdered
Afghan civilians for sport last year.

Army Specialist Jeremy Morlock, 23, told a military court he had helped to kill three unarmed
Afghans. "The plan was to kill people, sir," he told an army judge in Fort Lea, near Seattle, after his
plea.

The case has caused outraged headlines around the world. In a series of videotaped confessions to
investigators, some of which have been broadcast on American television, Morlock detailed how he
and other members of his Stryker brigade set up and faked combat situations so that they could kill
civilians who posed no threat to them. Four other soldiers are still to come to trial over the incidents.

The case is a PR disaster for America's military and has been compared to the notorious incidents of
torture that emerged from the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. This week the German magazine Der Spiegel
published three pictures that showed American soldiers, including Morlock, posing with the corpse of a young Afghan boy as if it were a hunting trophy.
