A shooting rampage in March that left 16 Afghans dead in two villages was the work of more than one person, an Afghan police investigator testified on Sunday, contradicting the US government's account.

Military prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for US Army Staff Sergeant Robert Bales who is charged with killing the villagers, mostly women and children who were shot in the head.

The US government says it believes Bales was solely responsible for the killings, but several indirect accounts have suggested that more than one US soldier was involved.

"One person did not have the courage to go to the villages in the dark of night," Major Khudai Dad, the Afghan Uniform Police's chief of criminal techniques in Kandahar City, told a hearing at a US Army base via video link from Kandahar.

"There's no way it is one person," said Dad, speaking through an interpreter. Dad visited three compounds several thousand meters apart in the villages of Alkozai and Najiban around 8 am on March 11, hours after the attacks.
