LONDON - The body of British bodyguard Alan McMenemy has been returned more than four years after he was kidnapped in Iraq, British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Friday.

McMenemy and three other bodyguards abducted in 2007 by a Shi'ite Muslim militia were killed when they tried to escape, a Shi'ite cleric who heads the group said earlier this month.

The bodies of the other bodyguards were handed over to British authorities in Baghdad during 2009 while Peter Moore, a computer programmer abducted with the bodyguards, was released alive at the end of the same year.
