Three more Fiji security guards killed in Iraq

Three more Fiji security guards killed in Iraq

Another three Fijian security guards have been killed in an insurgent attack in Iraq.

Radio Legend reports that the three died near Baghdad last night as a bomb was exploded under their convoy which was transporting goods.

They died instantly.

The radio says the men worked for ArmourGroup, the same security company which employed the three Fijian security guards killed early last month.

Their names are being withheld until the next of kin in Fiji are informed.

Nineteen security guards from Fiji have died in Iraq so far, with eight of them dying in a two-week period in late April and early May.

In addition, a number of Fijian soldiers serving with the British army have also been killed and injured in Iraq, with one burial taking place in Fiji only this week.
