Military investigating video of Marines urinating on Taliban bodies

WASHINGTON (AP) - The NATO-led security force in Afghanistan says the military personnel seen in a video apparently urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters are no longer in the country.

The International Security Assistance Force has released a statement calling the actions in the video "inexplicable and not in keeping with the high moral standards" expected of coalition forces.

The ISAF says the actions "appear to have been conducted by a small group of U.S. individuals, who apparently are no longer serving in Afghanistan."

The Marine Corps said Wednesday it is investigating the YouTube video but has not yet verified its origin or authenticity. The case has being referred to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Navy's worldwide law enforcement organization.
