American Servicemen Disciplined Over Koran Burnings and Urinating on Dead Taliban Fighters

No criminal charges, reprimands and "nonjudicial punishments" issued


The U.S. military disciplined 9 members of the armed forces on Monday in connection with incidents earlier this year involving the burning of Korans In Afghanistan and a video showing Marines urinating on dead Afghan fighters.

 The New York Times reported that the punishment did not involve criminal charges or jail time. In all, 6 members of the Army received letters of reprimand for the burning. An investigation made public Monday said that the soldiers were not acting out of "malicious intent," but did not follow proper procedures.
