In a landmark trial, a US federal jury has cleared a former marine sergeant of the deaths of Iraqi detainees.
The trial of Jose Luis Nazario is the first time a civilian jury has decided on the alleged crimes of a former US soldier while he was on active duty.
"they could not convict Mr Nazario for an alleged crime in which there were no bodies, no identities for the alleged victims and no forensic evidence."
