U.S President Donald Trump has pardoned four former Blackwater security guards convicted after their commitment in the killing of 14 Iraqi civilians in 2007.
Nicholas Slatten, Paul Slough, Evan Liberty and Dustin Heard opened fire in Baghdad’s Nisoor Square while escorting an American diplomatic convoy.
The White House stated that the pardons were supported by the public and lawmakers.
Mohammed Kinani, whose nine-year-old son Ali was the youngest victim, describes his disbelief at the news of the pardons and how memories of the event are still fresh in his mind.
“Today he broke my life again,” he said. “I lost my son and I feel I’m nothing.”(An Iraqi looks at a burnt car on the site where Blackwater guards opened fire on civilians in Baghdad on 16 September 2007. Source: BBC world Service.
