The killings appeared to be the worst case of lethal non-combat casualties for the American forces in Iraq since the invasion more than six years ago.
The shooting took place at around 2 p.m.
local time at Camp Liberty, a sprawling base next to Baghdad airport,
The death toll from the Monday shooting was
the highest for American personnel in a single attack since April 10, when a
suicide truck driver killed five American soldiers with a blast near a police headquarters
in Mosul, News agencies reported. [New York Times]
