Family members say the victims were unarmed civilians. The SAS had claimed they acted in self-defence.


Senior officers suspected troops of carrying out a policy of executing "fighting age" men even if they posed no threat.


The government announced the inquiry after BBC Panorama revealed an SAS squadron killed 54 people in suspicious circumstances on one six-month tour.


As substantive hearings got under way at the Royal Courts of Justice in London on Monday, UK special forces were accused of "abusing" night raids in order to commit "numerous" extra-judicial killings - which were allegedly later covered up.
