The US soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan villagers was upset by a serious injury sustained by an army comrade the day before the massacre, his lawyer has said. The 38-year-old army sergeant, being held in Kuwait, was also unhappy about being sent to Afghanistan, having earlier been told he would not be redeployed after three tours in Iraq, said the attorney on Wednesday. The married father-of-two is not being named, and his family has moved on to a military base south of Seattle because of security fears.
