Iraq has begun collecting signatures for a class action lawsuit on behalf of people killed or wounded in incidents involving US security firm Blackwater.
It will seek compensation for a number of such cases, the office of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said.
Incidents include the 2007 killing of 17 Iraqis in Baghdad's Nisoor Square.
Last month, a US judge dismissed charges against five Blackwater guards over those killings, which Iraqi officials described as "regrettable".
