Pentagon officials are investigating a video that showed up on the internet Wednesday. The video appears to show four Marines urinating on dead bodies of apparent insurgents according to The Week, United Kingdom edition.

Associated Press reports that the Marines have yet to verify the authenticity of the video that appeared on YouTube.

A Marine Corps spokesman, Lt. Col. Stewart Upton, added, “Allegations of Marines not doing the right thing in regard to dead Taliban insurgents are very serious and, if proven, represent a failure to adhere to the high standards expected of American military personnel.”

A Pentagon spokesman, Navy Capt. John Kirby, said the video is deeply troubling.
