2007Iraq : Blackwater USA has been banned from working in Iraq by the Iraqi government after a shooting that left eight Iraqis dead and involved an American diplomatic convoy. A spokesman for the Ministry of Interior, Brig. Gen. Abdul Karim Khalaf, said Monday that authorities had canceled the company’s license and that the government would prosecute the participants. But under the rules that govern private security contractors here, the Iraqis do not have the legal authority to do so. A law issued by the American authority in Iraq before the United States handed over sovereignty to Iraqis, Order No. 17, gives the companies immunity from Iraqi law. About 126,000 people working for contractors serve alongside American troops, including about 30,000 security contractors.New York Times
