Military Historian: Dutch Command Responsible for Torture by Afghans

Afghan soldiers, who were under Dutch command, tortured hostages in October 2007. According to the KRO media a Dutch soldier filmed the torture. On the pictures one can see blindfolded Taliban prisoners who are beaten by Afghan soldiers and also hit with batons on the soles of their feet. This took place in the Baluchi valley in northern Uruzgan. The military historian, Chris Klep, claims that the Dutch commander under whose command the Afghans served, is responsible for the torture. The Ministry of Defense says that the Afghans should be considered responsible.
