Unity Resources Group
Unity Resources Group is an Australian security, support and training firm that was formed in 2000. Unity is "an Australian-run security company registered in Singapore and with headquarters in Dubai," reported the New York Times.. Unity is a member of two trade organizations, the International Peace Operations Association and the Private Security Company Association of Iraq.
On October 9, 2007, Unity employees fired on a car in Baghdad, Iraq, killing two women civilians of Armenian descent. This killing came three weeks after a massacre by Blackwater USA in Baghdad and re-affirmed the Iraqi government's position to revoke contractor immunity. 
The Unity workers involved in the shooting were contracted to provide protection for RTI International. "Statements from both Unity and RTI have made clear the guards were not escorting RTI clients when the shooting occurred," reported Associated Press. RTI "promotes governance projects in Iraq for the U.S. Agency for International Development."
