The US government will appeal against a court ruling dismissing manslaughter charges in the Blackwater shootings case, US Vice-President Joe Biden has announced after talks in Baghdad.

Iraqis were furious when a US judge threw out charges against five Blackwater security guards over the 2007 killing of 17 Iraqis in Baghdad.
