Marine: Not in the head, that would be f****** obvious

A second audio recording has been released of three marines, accused of murdering an Afghan man, in conversation before the alleged incident.

The men, who are being tried by a court martial, deny the charge of murder following the incident in September 2011.

In the recording one marine can be heard saying: "Anyone want to do first aid on this idiot?"

Later in the recording, a marine says: "I can put one in his head if you want."

Another adds: "Not in his head because that would be f****** obvious."

The court martial board are deliberating their decision.
