Four ex-mercenaries that worked for private military contractor Blackwater have been convicted of slaughtering Iraqis in 2007 at a roadblock they had set up in Baghdad’s Nusoor Square. 17 Iraqis, including children and the elderly were shot down by Nicholas Slatten, 30, of Sparta, Tennessee, Paul Slough, 35, of Keller, Texas, Evan Liberty, 32, of Rochester, New Hampshire and Dustin Heard, 33, of Maryville, Tennessee. The trial lasted over two months and the Washington, DC jury deliberated 28 days before reaching guilty verdicts.
