The seven-week trial focused on why four Blackwater's security guards opened fire and threw grenades into a crowded Baghdad street as they attempted to clear a path for a US State Department convoy. The US investigation found 14 people died in the incident with a further 80 injured. Lawyers for the defence said the guards were reacting to gunfire from insurgents in the Iraqi police. But prosecutors argued they had shown a grave indifference to the carnage their actions would cause and that some of them harboured low regard and deep hostility towards Iraqi civilians.
