Court martial review adjourned over video showing Alexander Blackman murdering wounded Taliban fighter
The Ministry of Defence is resisting an attempt by the Guardian and other media organisations to persuade a court to release video footage showing an incident in which a British Royal Marine shot dead a wounded Taliban fighter.
Alexander Blackman is serving life for the murder of the injured man but his case has been referred to the court martial appeal court following an investigation by the Criminal Cases Review Commission. An appeal hearing is due to take place next month.
