Blackwater employees charged again

The Justice Department has filed new charges against four former Blackwater security contractors. This revives an internationally charged case over a deadly 2007 shooting in Baghdad. The men were hired to guard U.S. diplomats. They’re accused of opening fire in busy Nisoor Square on Sept. 16, 2007. Seventeen Iraqi civilians died.
