US Army investigates video showing troop 'firing weapon at civilian truck' in Afghanistan

US Central Command has started an investigation into video footage that purportedly shows an American soldier firing into the cab of a civilian truck in Afghanistan, Politico reported.

U.S. Central Command is investigating a video that appears to show a U.S. service member firing a shotgun at a civilian Afghan truck from a combat vehicle.

One brief clip amid the footage shows an armored vehicle driving past a truck.

The video, uploaded anonymously to YouTube under the title "Happy Few Ordnance Symphony" before it was quickly removed, shows what appears to be a US military vehicle passing a small-cab dump truck, commonly referred to as a "jingle truck".

Talking about his style of play, Arjun said that he doesn't take the pressure and stays focused. Unlike Sachin, he has been turning heads more for his fast bowling than his batting.

"The video in question is not official, not authorised and does not represent the professionalism of the service members of US Central Command".

"The amateur video posted on a public website gives us serious concern", Col. John Thomas, a spokesman for US Central Command, which oversees USA troops in Afghanistan, told CNN.

Gen. Joseph Votel, the Centcom chief, confirmed he'd seen the video, saying he was extremely disappointed by it, and promised to get to the bottom of it and take appropriate measures against whoever was involved.

According to Politico, the video was posted on YouTube and was called "Happy Few Ordnance Symphony".

The new species of pelican spiders have same elongated neck and beak-like pincers or chelicerae like other pelican spiders. In doing so, Wood was able to define 26 species from the island - 18 of which had never been described before.

The longer video was posted on a Facebook page and has since been deleted but has been reposted on other sites.

However, the short clip does not show what happened to the driver.

As the vehicle passes the civilian truck, a round - believed to be non-lethal such as a beanbag - is fired into the window, shattering it.

"I can assure you that this video does not represent the professionalism or humanity of the men and women of U.S. Central Command", U.S. Army Gen. Joseph Votel, the head of U.S. Central Command, said. "We reject the unprofessional and callous message this video conveys".
