A former SAS sergeant is to be investigated over claims he shot dead dying enemy soldiers after an ambush in Iraq. The revelations are contained in a book by the 42-year-old from Edinburgh.
The killings were carried out on the Syrian border in 2003 after an ambush in which a number of Iraqi soldiers were killed but at least three were fatally wounded. The soldier told the Mail on Sunday he shot dead at least two of the men.
The Geneva Convention and British military law prohibit such actions but the soldier has now revealed he is to face an investigation by military police.
