Legal action has finally ended against a group of Australian commandos involved in a disastrous raid in which six Afghan civilians died.

Defence said all legal processes relating to charges over the incident had now been concluded.

The charges stemmed from a raid conducted by members of the Special Operations Task Group (SOTG) in Afghanistan on February 12, 2009.

SOTG soldiers came under fire as they conducted a compound clearance operation, responding with gunfire and hand grenades. Six civilians, including five children, were killed as a result of the operation.
