    2nd US soldier found guilty of Afghan abuses

    From the Special Broadcasting Service:

    The US military court in Afghanistan sentenced the American soldier to six months confinement and a reduction in rank after finding him guilty of punching detainees. The conviction of Sergeant Kevin Myricks came three days after another soldier was convicted for mistreating the same detainees at a base in eastern Afghanistan in July. Myricks was found guilty of one count of conspiracy to maltreat a detainee and another count of maltreatment of two detainees. He was reduced in rank to a private and sentenced to six months confinement, a US military statement said.
