Child witnesses to the massacre of 17 Afghan civilians by Staff Sgt. Robert Bales say there was more than one U.S. soldier party to the crime, contradicting the story told by the Pentagon.

Yalda Hakim, a journalist for SBS Dateline in Australia, was born in Afghanistan and immigrated to Australia as a child. She is the first international journalist to interview the surviving witnesses, which she was able to do after American officials tried to prevent her contact with the village witnesses.

An 8-year old Afghan girl named Noorbinak, according to the MSNBC, “told Hakim that the shooter first shot her father’s dog. Then, Noorbinak said in the video, he shot her father in the foot and dragged her mother by the hair. When her father started screaming, he shot her father, the child says. Then he turned the gun on Noorbinak and shot her in the leg.”

“One man entered the room and the others were standing in the yard, holding lights,” Noorbinak said in the interview.

Video Journalist Yalda Hakim returns to her birthplace, Kabul. In 1983 her father risked death by smuggling his young family out of Afghanistan on horseback to Pakistan, to escape the Russian invasion. Yalda was six months old. While Yalda’s parents embark on an emotional family reunion, she takes her camera to an opium den, a drug rehab centre, a refugee camp and a hospital, keen to understand why the city of her birth is so vastly different to what she’d expected. She often travels hidden in the boot of a relative’s car – they know she stands out as a foreigner and they fear she’ll be targeted by kidnappers. Her overwhelming emotion is guilt: why does she live with so much, when they survive on so little?
