Watering the bodies

In the US, a military court of appeals has overturned the conviction of Staff Sergeant Joseph Chamblin of the Marines.

Chamblin was convicted five years ago, after he pleaded guilty to a charge of desecrating the bodies of enemy fighters, in Afghanistan in 2011.

Along with several other Marine snipers he pissed on the bodies of several dead Taliban fighters and posted a video of the act on social media.
