Military Contractor Could Hang in Iraq

Add another gruesome tale to the long list of violence perpetrated by renegade military contractors in Iraq. A British man working for ArmorGroup, a company based in England, went on a booze-fueled rampage in the Green Zone, allegedly shooting and killing two of his drinking companions and then firing and wounding an Iraqi who tried to intervene. The man, Danny Fitzsimmons, then allegedly fled the scene and was turned over to Iraqi authorities after a shootout, the Times of London reports. He will be the first military contractor to be tried in Iraq's judicial system since the invasion in 2003. It is possible that he will face the death penalty.
