Iraqi people are "extremely angry" that a US judge has dismissed charges against guards from US security firm Blackwater over the killing of 17 Iraqis in 2007, an Iraqi parliamentarian has said.

Mowaffak al-Rubaie, chairman of the Iraqi parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, said he felt that the men should be tried in Iraq where the incident took place.
