AUDIO: UN asking the NZ Government to fully investigate 2010 Afghan raid

09/06/2017

Mitch Harris talks with Newshub political reporter Jenna Lynch on the United Nations asking the New Zealand Government to fully investigate the 2010 Afghan raid.

In the book Hit and Run, released earlier this year, investigative journalist Nicky Hager alleged the Defence Force left 21 civilians dead or wounded in the raid.

Executive director of Amnesty International New Zealand, Grant Bayldon, says the organisation disagrees with Prime Minister Bill English's claim there's no basis for ordering an inquiry into the alleged war crimes.
