Article 32 hearing continues for US soldier charged with murder of Iraqi

[JURIST] An Article 32 hearing continues Wednesday for US Army Capt. Rogelio Maynulet, who is charged with murdering an Iraqi follower of radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr. Maynulet was charged following an incident in May in which US troops allegedly fired on a civilian vehicle suspected of carrying militants. The hearing was delayed earlier in the summer, and is now expected to conclude Friday. Nine witnesses were due to appear at the hearing today. JURIST's Paper Chase has background on the charges. AFP has more.
