Violent Encounters

Iraq's Interior Ministry says Blackwater USA has been involved in at least six violent incidents in Baghdad this year that left 10 Iraqis dead. These encounters have stoked the government's anger over an additional incident Sunday in which the ministry says Blackwater guards killed 11 people. Blackwater has said its guards acted in self-defense Sunday, but it did not respond to a request for comment on the other incidents.
