In October 2006, German troops in Afghanistan were in the centre of an international scandal of them posing with human skulls. Six servicemen were suspended over the first case, and a total of 23 were being investigated in connection with the incident.[1]

The events took place during the War in Afghanistan (2001–present), and included German soldiers taking photographs of each other posed with skulls, including kissing the skulls.
