Up to 100 Korans and other religious materials were burned by US soldiers in the February incident in Afghanistan that sparked several days of rioting and attacks in the country, the US military has said.
The US Army earlier announced that six soldiers received "administrative punishments" for their part in the burnings.
But the military investigation, whose findings were announced today, rejected suggestions that the soldiers involved had malicious intent to defame Islam.
Instead, distrust between US troops and their Afghan partners was cited among the reasons for the incendiary incident. LINK
