Four US soldiers face disciplinary action for burning the bodies of Taliban rebels, but they won't be prosecuted because their actions were motivated by hygienic concerns, the military said after an inquiry into a videotaped incident that sparked outrage in Afghanistan. Television video recorded on Oct. 1 in a violent part of southern Afghanistan showed US soldiers setting fire to the bodies and then later boasting about the act on loudspeakers to taunt insurgents suspected to be hiding in a nearby village. American commanders immediately launched an inquiry and vowed that anyone found guilty would be severely punished.
