No Purple Hearts for Fort Hood shooting victims

Posted: Updated:

The US Army decided against awarding Purple Hearts to victims of the Fort Hood shooting massacre.

Military officials believe awarding victims could prevent the suspected gunman, Major Nidal Hasan, from getting a fair trial and could push back the start of the trial another year.

Hasan is charged with killing 13 people in the attack in 2009 on post in Killeen, Texas.

He faces the death penalty if convicted.

His court martial starts in July.
