German humour in Afghanistan

Das Bild is claiming to have photographic proof that, during 2003, German soldiers defiled a corpse in Afghanistan. Both Google Translator and BabelFish are defeated by the tabloid German, so details from the The Daily Telegraph:

...the photographs show one soldier holding the skull next to his exposed penis, while in another image, a soldier displays the skull mounted on a cable cutter in front of a patrol vehicle bearing both the German flag and logo for the ISAF.
Is that all? The average medical student is surely more imaginative. Predictably, the politicians are pontificating at length even before the photographs have been proved to be genuine.
