Body of dead German elite anti-terror trooper found in Iraq

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Berlin, May 2, IRNA -- German Foreign Ministry spokesman Walter 
Lindner announced Saturday that the body of one of two elite GSG-9 
anti-terror troopers who were killed during an ambush near the Iraqi 
town of Fallujah last month, had been found and properly identified, 
DPA reported. 
The remains of the German security official will probably be 
transferred to Germany on Sunday, according to the foreign ministry. 
The body of the other dead security agent has yet to be recovered.
The troopers, ages 27 and 35, were reportedly shot dead when their
convoy, en route from Amman, Jordan to the German embassy in Baghdad, 
was attacked near Fallujah. 
The security agents were scheduled to relieve other security 
troopers at the German embassy in Baghdad as part of a routine 
rotation of personnel.
