A Spanish-language Argentine TV station said Wednesday that a video had surfaced showing a soldier who died in Iraq in 2002 being burned alive.
The soldier’s body was burned in an incinerator in Baghdad.
In the video, a man wearing a camouflage uniform can be seen burning the body with a cigarette.
The Argentinean military, which controls the airwaves in the country, said it was investigating the footage and said it had no further comment.
In a statement, the military said it “does not condone the killing of the soldier in the video.”
The soldier, identified by the military as Miguel Angel Lopez, was a Spanish-speaking soldier assigned to a Spanish battalion in Iraq when he was killed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant group (ISIL, also known as ISIS) in 2014.
Lopez was one of about 30 soldiers from the U.S.-led coalition fighting the ISIL that were killed in an airstrike on the ISIL stronghold of Mosul in Iraq’s Anbar province in September.
