BAGHDAD - The leader of the Iraq Shi'ite militia Asaib al-Haq said kidnapped British bodyguard Alan McMenemy had been killed in a clash with his abductors and the group was willing to turn over his body without conditions.

McMenemy was kidnapped by Asaib al-Haq, or Leagues of Righteousness, along with computer programmer Peter Moore and three other guards in 2007. Moore was released in 2009 and the bodies of the three guards have been returned.

Qais al-Khazali, a Shi'ite cleric who leads the militia, told Reuters that the four guards were killed when they tried to escape from their captors.
