Trial over British soldier killings delayed
Wednesday 29 September 2010
A judge has postponed the trial of two Iraqi men accused of killing six British military policemen in 2003.
A British Embassy spokeswoman in Baghdad said the Iraqi court delayed the hearing until October 10 to give more witnesses time to travel.
Iraqi officials did not immediately announce the delay to reporters waiting to enter Baghdad's Central Court to cover the proceedings today.
The six British soldiers were playing football with Iraqi police officers they were training in the southern town of Majar al-Kabir when a mob chased them into a police station and shot them.
Majar al-Kabir is about 120 miles north of Basra, Iraq's second largest city, near the southern Kuwaiti border.
