Five Blackwater Worldwide security guards, indicted in Washington for the 2007 shooting of Iraqi civilians, plan to surrender to the FBI on Monday in Utah, a person close to the case said, setting up a fight over the trial site.
By surrendering in Utah, the home state of one of the guards, the men could argue in more conservative venue than Washington. The five guards, all military veterans, were indicted for their roles in a 2007 shooting in Baghdad that left 17 Iraqi civilians dead. Prosecutors are expected to argue that crimes committed overseas are normally charged in Washington.
