British contractor killed in Iraq: Foreign Office

A British civilian contractor was shot and killed in Iraq while driving between the northern cities of Mosul and Arbil, the Foreign Office revealed. “He was shot in a drive-by shooting on the main Mosul to Arbil highway,” a Foreign Office spokeswoman told AFP on Wednesday. The victim, 33-year-old Andrew Harris, born in Cardiff, south Wales, was working for an unnamed security company. “We are actually not directly involved in this.
