Private Security Guards Use Iraqi Citizens for Target Practice
A "trophy" video appearing to show security guards in Baghdad randomly shooting Iraqi civilians has sparked two investigations after it was posted on the internet, the Sunday Telegraph can reveal.
The video has sparked concern that private security companies, which are not subject to any form of regulation either in Britain or in Iraq, could be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of innocent Iraqis.
According to the Telegraph reporter, the video is even set to music: "Mystery Train", by Elvis Presley.
