Biden vows the US will appeal in Iraq Blackwater/Xe case


Vice-President Joe Biden says the US government will appeal against a court ruling dismissing manslaughter charges in the Blackwater/Xe shootings case.
Mr Biden was speaking after meeting Iraqi politicians in Baghdad.
Iraqis were furious when a US judge threw out charges against five Blackwater security guards over the 2007 killing of 17 Iraqis in Baghdad.
Mr Biden is in Iraq in an attempt to defuse a political crisis over candidates for the election in March.
