The 45-year old bodyguard, Brian Tilley, was massacred by gunmen dressed as Iraqi policemen.

The only surviving witness to the surprise attack was a 15-year-old Iraqi girl named Sarah, who told American military police that the gunmen were wearing Iraqi police uniforms.

Tilley was hauled into the kitchen where he was beaten and then shot three times in the back and once in the stomach.

The gunmen then shot the rest of the occupants, who included Sarah, her mother and her mother’s boyfriend, her aunt, and two female friends, one of whom was Tilley’s girlfriend Iman.

Despite being shot in the head, Sarah survived the ordeal, the inquest sitting in Bournemouth heard.

US Army captain Katherine Brennan, from the military police said that Sarah confirmed that the gunmen were dressed in Iraqi policemen clothes.

“When we found out Sarah was at a local hospital, we immediately brought the Iraqi police doing the investigation to the hospital,” the Daily Mail quoted Brennan, as saying.

“Once we found Sarah, she was very nervous of the Iraqi police. She didn’t want anything to do with them. She had said they came in Iraqi police uniforms,” she added. (ANI)
