2006 German troops controversy

In October 2006, German troops in Afghanistan were in the centre of an international scandal of them posing with human skulls. Six servicemen were suspended over the first case, and a total of 23 were being investigated in connection with the incident.[1]

The events took place during the War in Afghanistan (2001-present), and included German soldiers taking photographs of each other posed with skulls, including kissing the skulls.
