Xewater Contractors in Court

Two former Blackwater employees are on trial in Virginia.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin in Virginia in the trial of two former defense contractors charged with the deaths of two Afghan nationals.
The trial of Justin H. Cannon of Corpus Christi, Texas, and Christopher Drotleff of Virginia Beach begins Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Norfolk. It's expected to last two to three weeks.
The former contractors for Blackwater Worldwide are accused in the shooting deaths of two Afghan nationals in Kabul in May 2009. Drotleff and Cannon have said they opened fire on a vehicle when it sped toward them.
