Australian journalist talks with survivors of Afghan shooting spree

The U.S. Army is now putting together a sanity board to look into what happened when a soldier allegedly went on a deadly killing spree in Afghanistan.

Sgt. Robert Bales is charged with murdering 17 Afghan villagers, including nine children, in the middle of the night last month.

Yalda Hakim of Australia's SBS network was the first Western journalist to visit the village to and speak to the survivors who described in detail what happened.
