Right after reading this article about an op-ed piece by Ted Koppel ,I came across this.
The story says...
American forces in Iraq have recruited former as well as serving military officers from many countries. The Sri Lankans thus recruited receive a monthly salary ranging from 300,000 to 500.000 rupees according to their ranks and are also entitled for a life insurance of 50 million rupees. Around 300 Sri Lankans are currently in Iraq under the US forces and some have returned home at the end of their contract periods.
