BAGHDAD — Iraqi soldiers detained two American and one Italian security guards along with several other foreigners traveling Monday in a private security convoy after they opened fire in Baghdad, wounding one woman, an Iraqi military spokesman said.

U.S. military and embassy officials had no immediate information about the report, which follows a series of recent shootings in which foreign security guards have allegedly killed Iraqis.

Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi said the convoy was driving on the wrong side of the road in the central Baghdad neighborhood of Karradah when the shooting occurred.

Those arrested included one Italian and two American guards, along with 21 people from Sri Lanka, nine from Bangladesh and one from India, the Baghdad military spokesman said.

More strife for private contractors can only be a positive.
Maybe it will make important people take a postive step to ban the use of mercenaries in this illegial war.
