Australian SAS soldiers are investigated for war crimes following rumours of murdered prisoners, children being killed and bodies mutilated in Afghanistan

On Thursday, Australia moved to prosecute the alleged war crimes with Prime Minister Scott Morrison - citing allegations of 'serious and possibly criminal misconduct' - appointing a special investigator.

The move forestalls any prosecution at the International Criminal Court.

Since Australian combat troops left the country in 2013, a series of often-brutal accounts have emerged about the conduct of Australia's elite special forces units.

They range from reports of troops killing a six-year-old child in a house raid, to a dead foe's hand being severed, to a prisoner being shot dead to save space in a helicopter.
