US soldiers face war crime charge

The family of a Spanish television cameraman killed when a US tank opened fire on the Palestine hotel in Baghdad during the Iraq war has asked a Madrid court to extradite and bring war crimes charges against three US soldiers.

Cameraman Jose Couso, 37, of Spain's Tele 5 channel, was killed with a Reuters cameraman, Tara Prtsyuk, a 35-year-old Ukrainian, when an Americans Abrams tank opened fire on the hotel. The family named three members of the US army's 3rd Infantry Division's 4th Battalion 64th Armour Regiment which had been operating in the area at the time.

They asked for the Spanish judge to issue an international arrest warrant for the detention of a Sergeant Shawn Gibson, said to be in charge of the tank that fired, of his immediate superior, Captain Philip Wolford, and of the unit's commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Philip de Camp.

"The facts related constitute from the perspective of international law 'war crimes'," the family claimed in the suit filed at the national court in Madrid.

Pilar Hermoso, a lawyer for the Couso family, said Spanish law and international treaties allowed suspected war criminals to be tried in Spain, even when the alleged crimes were committed abroad.

It was unclear yesterday whether the court would accept the request to open an investigation.

The US secretary of state, Colin Powell. said this month that he thought the deaths were "an accident of war".

Officials in Washington have continued to insist that there was incoming sniper fire from the Palestine hotel. "We said we took fire from there [the hotel] and another location," a Pentagon spokesman, Bryan Whitman, told Reuters.

"As long as you're taking fire from a location, you're going to return fire. They were defending themselves."
