WikiLeaks posts video of 'US military killings' in Iraq

WikiLeaks has posted a video on its website which it claims shows the killing of civilians by the US military in Baghdad in 2007.

The website's organisers say they were given the footage, which they say comes from cameras on US Apache helicopters.

They say they decrypted it, but would not reveal who gave it to them.

However, Reuters and the Associated Press have quoted unnamed US military officials as confirming the video was genuine.

Steve Kingstone reports.
