Report: Australian elite troops killed Afghan civilians

According to a report by the Australian Defence Force (ADF) that looked into possible behaviour of misconduct in their own forces, 19 current or ex-special forces soldiers should be investigated by police over killings of "prisoners, farmers or civilians" in 2009-13.

The report found evidence for multiple patterns of misconduct. One example mentioned is that new soldiers were told to get their first kill by shooting prisoners, in a practice known as "flooding".
