JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. (AP) - A man who was wounded during a massacre in Afghanistan in March has testified at a hearing for the U.S. soldier accused in the attack that he saw a gunman climb over the wall outside his home and start shooting.

Haji Mohammed Naim testified early Saturday through an interpreter and by live video feed from Kandahar during a preliminary hearing for Staff Sgt. Robert Bales at a military base outside Seattle.

Bales is charged with 16 counts of premeditated murder in a March 11 attack on two villages and could face the death penalty if convicted.

Naim says he was in bed when he heard gunshots and dogs barking. He says the gunman climbed over the wall of his compound and then the man came up close and shot him.
