The trial has begun of three Royal Marines accused of killing a captured Afghan national.

The servicemen, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, face a court martial charged with murder while on active duty in Afghanistan.

The commandos, known in court as Marines A, B and C, are accused of murdering an unknown Afghan national in September 2011.

They were arrested by the Royal Military Police in October last year, after suspicious video footage was found on a serviceman's laptop by civilian police in the UK.

Go here for the video report.
