    Anyone know more on this story? This is the first I've heard of it. Unfortunate that Army soldiers are doing this sort of thing.

    Army Officer Sentenced in Iraqi Drowning
    By ANGELA K. BROWN, Associated Press Writer

    FORT HOOD, Texas - An Army platoon leader was sentenced Tuesday to 45 days in a military prison for his role in forcing three Iraqi civilians into the Tigris River.

    Army 1st Lt. Jack Saville also must forfeit $2,000 of his military salary each month for six months, military judge Col. Theodore Dixon ruled.

    Prosecutors had recommended Saville, who chose a nonjury trial, be discharged from the Army.
