US 'reviewing' Iraq killing video posted on WikiLeaks
WikiLeaks posts video of 'US military killings' in Iraq
The US military is reviewing a video of a controversial helicopter attack on a group of people in Iraq in 2007, officials say.
The review comes after footage of the attack was published online by the website WikiLeaks, gaining 4.1 million YouTube viewings.
There are, however, no plans to reopen an investigation into the case, a US Central Command spokesman says.
An earlier probe into the case cleared the helicopter crew of any war crimes.
"Military attorneys are looking at it," a US official, who spoke under condition of anonymity, was quoted as saying by AFP news agency.
Reuters photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen, 22, and his driver and assistant Saeed Chmagh, 40, were both killed in the attack when their cameras were mistaken for weapons, US officials say.
"I would welcome a thorough new investigation. Reuters from the start has called for transparency and an objective inquiry so that all can learn lessons from this tragedy," Reuters editor-in-chief David Schlesinger said in a statement.
