A US soldier cried as he told a court-martial that his staff sergeant had ordered him to shoot an unarmed Iraqi. He said the sergeant then laughed and told the trooper to finish the job as the dying man convulsed on the ground. The military reported, meanwhile, that it had opened an investigation into the deaths of five women and four children this week in a village where American forces had carried out ground and air assaults. Both incidents took place in a region south of the capital known as the triangle of death, a Sunni-dominated area that has seen some of the war's heaviest fighting and most gruesome deaths.
