Iraq ends licence for Blackwater


news.bbc.co.uk

Iraq will not renew the licence of US security firm Blackwater, which was involved in an 2007 incident in which at least 14 civilians were killed.

An interior ministry spokesman said the US embassy had been told it will have to use another security company.

Five former Blackwater guards have gone on trial in the United States over the killings in Baghdad.

They have pleaded not guilty to killing 14 Iraqi civilians and wounding 18 others by gunfire and grenades.

well was reading the guardian today after work and i stumbled across a small article about blackwater loosing its contract to operate in Iraq.

found the bbc have ran a story about it yesterday. so sorry if its not new news to all.

im glad these mercenary's wont be killing anymore in iraq.

but makes me more worried for the Americans as they are given homeland contracts all the time
