Recent rulings by the South Korean Truth and Reconciliation Commission have held that on more than 100 occasions during the Korean war in the ealry 1950s civilians were killed by US troops. However, the Commission decided not to proceed with criminal charges, either because of a lack of sufficient evidence or because the killings were militarily justified, according to a report in today's New York Times.
