From Nine To Noon, 11:05 am on 24 March 2017

Kathryn Ryan talks to the human rights lawyer Deborah Manning, one of a team of lawyers who will act for the families of the Afghan villagers allegedly killed in a raid led by New Zealand special forces in 2010. The raid is the subject of a new book called Hit and Run in which the authors claim six civilians died and 15 were injured in Baglan province. Deborah Manning says the families are seeking a full and independent inquiry into what happened.
