“The US soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan civilians in a massacre that has undermined relations with Kabul has been named as Staff Sgt Robert Bales.

Officials confirmed the name of the suspect as he was heading back to the US to face charges, US media reported.

He is being flown to Fort Leavenworth, in Kansas, from Kuwait.

His lawyer, John Henry Browne, said on Thursday that the suspect was a 38-year-old man who had been injured twice while serving in Iraq.” — Copyright 2012 BBC
