Trophy video: Lib Dems seek answers

Channel Four News is carrying a report on the trophy video on the main page of its website. It looks like it will be on the main bulletin tonight. The piece includes an interview with Lib Dem Defence spokesman Menzies Cambell, who is demanding an explanation of the video’s contents. 

This is not the first time that the Lib Dems have intervened on Aegis. back in February, Brent East MP Sarah Teather wrote to the US Embassy in London to ask that it respond to the concerns raised by the family of Peter McBride.

Update 6pm

EuroNews has a brief interview with a returned private military contractor.

Update 7pm

The Channel Four News bulletin reported that the Conservatives have called for all private security contractors in Iraq to be replaced by regular troops. Excellent news, but ironic given that Nicholas Soames, a Tory MP and former Minister at the MOD, has just joined the board of Aegis.
