Translator Killed in Iraq by Gunman

Two sisters who were working for British forces as translators were shot at recently in Iraq. One was killed and the other seriously wounded. They had been near their home in Basra when they were attacked, according to Scotland on Sunday.

A person saying he is a member of the Brigades of Imam al-Hussein, a shi’ite militia, claimed responsibility for the attack, and said that he was giving the Iraqi people the good news of the deaths of “two agents who work for the British forces.”

The killing of civilians by Iraqi militias is no more acceptable than the killing of civilians by occupying forces, and vice-versa.
