On Nov. 19, 2005, a group of Marines went on a shooting spree in which 24 Iraqi civilians were killed.
A photo contained in a Naval Criminal Investigative Service report independently obtained by The Washington Post shows a Marine inspecting a roadside scene near Haditha, Iraq, where five unarmed civilians were killed on Nov. 19, 2005. Earlier that day, Marines stopped the white taxi in which the men had been riding, then shot them after a bomb exploded nearby. The incident was the first on a day of violence in Haditha that left 24 civilians dead, among them women and children. Obtained by The Post from the NCIS Buy Photo
