U.S. soldier behind civilian killings flown out of Afghanistan

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. staff sergeant who killed over a dozen Afghan villagers this week has been flown out of Afghanistan, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.

The commander of U.S. and Afghan forces in Afghanistan, General John Allen, made the decision to fly the soldier, whose name has not been released, out of Afghanistan based on a legal recommendation, a U.S. official said.
