US troops with dead Afghan bodies

PHOTOS of American soldiers in mocking "trophy shots" with the bodies of Afghan suicide bombers have drawn the fury of President Barack Obama and condemnation from Australian Defence Minister Stephen Smith.

The graphic pictures in the Los Angeles Times represented the latest in a series of damaging incidents involving American troops since the start of the year.

The decision to publish the photos, provided by an anonymous soldier, also set off a debate about whether the newspaper had acted responsibly.

Images published on the Times' website showed one soldier purportedly with a corpse's hand on his shoulder and others holding the severed legs of a suicide bomber.

The LA Times went against the wishes of the source by publishing the images.
