An Iraqi taxi driver was shot dead by a private security guard hired to protect US convoys driving through Baghdad, Iraqi police said Monday.
The incident took place Saturday afternoon, when a taxi driver got close to the convoy in western Baghdad's Atafiyah neighborhood, according to a police officer at the nearest station.
The US Embassy in Baghdad corroborated that account, but said it could not confirm whether anyone was killed or wounded.
