A rocket attack on Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone has killed three foreign security workers and injured 15 more, according to the US Embassy.

The dead and wounded are all employees of the US contractor Triple Canopy.

Two Ugandans and a Peruvian died, and two Americans were among the those wounded when the rocket struck on Thursday.

Triple Canopy, based in Herndon, Virginia, guards security checkpoints for US military facilities in Iraq.

    FYI these guys are all former BlackWater DOS Contractors. When Blackwater lost the contract all employee’s were turned over to Triple Canopy.

  2. FYI these guys were not Blackwater employees – they were TCN (third country nationals) – from Peru and Uganda as the article states – and the Americans were not former BW employees…. NOT EVERYONE IS
