Army skulls photos row

Germany has suspended two soldiers in connection with macabre photos showing German troops posing with human skulls in Afghanistan.

Four other soldiers - no longer in the army - are also being investigated over the images, which have shocked Germany.

The pictures were published on Wednesday in the popular daily Bild.

Since then photos of similar, separate incidents have emerged. RTL TV showed images of a soldier kissing a skull, and of skulls mounted in a pile.

The six soldiers identified are being investigated in connection with the Bild photos.

Defence Minister Franz Josef Jung said on Friday the two soldiers still serving 'will no longer be a part of the German army'.

Prosecutors have said the six could face charges of disturbing the peace of the dead, which carries a prison sentence of up to three years.

WTF?! Some soldiers blowing off steam in the middle of a war zone and now they're going to be punished for it? Nuts, nuts, nuts ...
