Justice sought for Iraq deaths

Families want US military to answer for civilian deaths following Baghdad air raid caught on tape.

    The US military says it has no reason to doubt the authenticity of a video leaked through the whistleblower website WikiLeaks showing a US military attack on a group of civilians in Iraq.

    In the 2007 attack, a US military helicopter fired on a group of Iraqis, killing 12 civilians, according to the website, including two employees of the Reuters news agency.

    The footage from a helicopter cockpit also shows a man stopping to help the injured, but he too is shot dead.

    In an Al Jazeera exclusive, Omar al-Saleh speaks to the man's children, who were injured but survived the attack.
