NCIS agents are looking into allegations that Marines killed as many as eight unarmed civilians during a battle in Fallujah in November, 2004. This makes at least the third instance of possible war crimes committed by Marines from Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Regiment.

The unit is also at the center of the investigation into the killings at Haditha, where 24 civilians died. The crimes in Fallujah are alleged to have come early in a very intense firefight and resulted when superiors expressed surprise that the Iraqis were still alive. Guest
