2007. aasta 12. juuli õhurünnak Bagdadis

Allikas: Vikipeedia

2007. aasta 12. juuli õhurünnak Bagdadis toimus Bagdadis New Bagdadi linnaosas[1]. See intsident pälvis üleilmse tähelepanu pärast piloodikabiinist filmitud videolõigu avaldamist 5. aprillil 2010.

12. juulil 2007 avasid kaks Ameerika Ühendriikide armee AH-64 Apache helikopterit tule rühma iraaklaste pihta, tappes kaksteist inimest, sealhulgas kaks Reutersi uudisteagentuuri töötajat: [2] Namir Noor-Eldeeni ja Saeed Chmaghi.[3]

5. aprillil 2010 avaldas Wikileaks salastatud videolõigu intsidendist pealkirjastades selle "tsiviilisikute mõrvana" (Collateral Murder)[2] avaldamata seejuures video saamise kuupäeva ning allikat. Reuters väitis, viidates anonüümseks jääda soovinud USA sõjaväe ametnikule, et "video ja heli olid autentsed."[4][5]
