The lawyer defending a US soldier accused of killing 16 Afghans has said there is little hard evidence against his client.

Attorney John Henry Browne said Staff Sergeant Robert Bales cannot remember much about the night of the shooting, and that there is little evidence that could stand up in court against him.
