Nisour Square massacre

The second trial of U.S. citizen Nicholas Slatten, the former Blackwater (now Academi) employee who was found guilty in 2013 of first-degree murder in connection to the killing in 2007 of fourteen unarmed civilians on Baghdad's Nisour Square and sentenced to life in prison, ends in a mistrial.

Nicholas Slatten was previously found guilty in the 2007 mass shooting of unarmed civilians in Baghdad, but that conviction was overturned last year. Now his retrial has ended in a hung jury.
