Inquiry into Canada special forces in Afghanistan: report


14 September 2010 - Canada's Defense Ministry is conducting a "major inquiry" into the conduct of its special forces in Afghanistan between 2005 and 2008, CBC public television reported Tuesday.

Dubbed "Sand Trap 2," the investigation follows the narrower "Sand Trap 1" inquiry, which ended after several months but did not result in any charges being filed, Navy Captain David Scanlon told the station.

Contacted by AFP, a spokesman for Defense Minister Peter MacKay declined comment.

Scanlon told CBC that Sand Trap 2 began in 2008 after a Canadian commando raised concerns about the behavior of his colleagues.

Scanlon declined to say what activities or actions were being investigated, but the forces under investigation were part of Joint Task Force Two, which is known to have been involved in operations targeting high-level Taliban and Al-Qaeda members. {read rest}
