G4S 'warned' over killer security guard Danny Fitzsimons
Danny Fitzsimons was convicted of shooting dead fellow security guards Paul McGuigan and Darren Hoare. Security firm G4S was sent warnings not to employ an armed guard in Iraq just days before he murdered two colleagues, a BBC investigation has found.
Private security guard Paul McGuigan, from the Scottish Borders, was shot dead by Danny Fitzsimons in 2009 in Baghdad while on a protection contract.
Another man, Australian Darren Hoare, was also killed. All were working for UK contractor G4S, which was operating under the name ArmorGroup in the region.
