AP – More than three weeks after the massacre of 17 civilians in Afghanistan, U.S. military investigators finally have gotten their first look at the villages where Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales allegedly carried out the shooting rampage.

Army criminal investigators visited the villages early this week to collect forensic evidence, two senior defense officials said Thursday. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of prohibitions against talking about the ongoing investigation into the March 11 killings.

Investigators stayed away from the shooting sites for more than three weeks to avoid aggravating tensions with angry villagers.

It wasn’t known how much or what kind of evidence they were able to find so long after the shootings.
