Ex-US soldier convicted of killing Iraqi family

A former US soldier is facing a possible death sentence in his homeland for raping and killing a 14-year-old Iraqi girl after killing her parents and younger sister.

Twenty-four-year-old Steven Dale Green, from Texas, had been discharged from the army for a personality disorder before he was charged with the crimes.

His trial heard how he and a group of fellow soldiers hatched a plot to kill the family after losing several members of their unit in combat.

Three other soldiers who testified against Green are serving time in military prison for their roles in the attack.
