Dutch Soldiers Killed 80 Afghan Civilians – All Legal

The Ministry of Defense says that in the four years of Dutch presence in Afghanistan, its soldiers killed at least 80 Afghan civilians and wounded 120. Investigations show that all this violence is within the international and Dutch rules of engagement. The only instances where Dutch soldiers had to be brought before judges were issues such as failure in guard duties, unjustified firing, theft or violence.
