A US marine has been charged with murdering an unarmed detainee in Iraq, the US military said.
Sgt Ryan Weemer is the third marine to be charged in connection with the November 2004 incident, which happened during heavy fighting in Falluja.
Sgt Jermaine Nelson and Squad Leader Josť Nazario also face charges over the alleged killing of unarmed captives.
Sgt Weemer, 25, who is based at Camp Pendleton, California, has also been charged with dereliction of duty.
The charges were brought following a navy investigation after Sgt Weemer reportedly revealed details of the killing while taking a polygraph test for a Secret Service job.
He is accused of shooting an unknown man, who was being held by US forces during Operation Phantom Fury, says the BBC's Rajesh Mirchandani in California.
