Royal Marines in court

Five Royal Marines charged with the murder of a captured Afghan national appeared in court today.

The commandos were charged with murder following an incident believed to have happened in September last year in Afghanistan.

The men, who for legal reasons can only be referred to as Marines A, B, C, D and E, attended for a plea and case management hearing at the Military Court Centre in Bulford, Wiltshire, but the case was adjourned to March 8.
