US President Donald Trump has pardoned 15 people including four military contractors convicted of shooting dead 14 civilians in Iraq in 2007.
The men worked for the private security firm formerly known as Blackwater and were serving long prison sentences.
The incident caused international outrage, and the pardons have left many Iraqis angered.

Al Jazeera’s Charles Stratford reports from Baghdad, where he spoke to a man injured in that attack.
