Delete those pictures or we delete you - Photographing US soldiers in Afghanista
Date: Monday, March 05 2007

The U.S. military is being accused of trying to cover up the civilian deaths at the recent convoy bombing. A freelance photographer working for the Associated Press said he took photos of a vehicle where three Afghans had been shot to death inside. An American soldier then took the photographer's camera and deleted the photos. A reporter for Afghanistan's largest television station, Tolo TV, said a US soldier also forced him to delete footage. The soldier reportedly told the journalist "Delete them, or we will delete you."
