U.S. contractors held in Green Zone killing, sources say.

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Five American security contractors were detained in connection with the killing of another American contractor last month inside Baghdad's Green Zone, sources with knowledge of the investigation told CNN on Saturday.

Iraqi and U.S. personnel took the five into custody in an operation inside the Green Zone before dawn Friday, according to an Iraqi official involved in the investigation into the killing of James Kitterman. The five, who have not yet been charged, were being held by Iraqi security forces Saturday at a jail inside the heavily protected zone, he said.

The troops also confiscated weapons during the raid, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
