Iraq has ordered more than 200 current and former employees of the private security company formerly known as Blackwater, which still plays a role in guarding U.S. diplomats, to leave the country within the next four days. Five of the company's guards were involved in a September 2007 shooting that killed 17 Iraqi civilians.
