US Justice joins lawsuit against KBR on kickbacks

WASHINGTON, May 5 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday it has joined a lawsuit against KBR Inc (KBR.N) that alleges that employees of two freight forwarders provided unlawful kickbacks to KBR transportation department employees.

    KBR has a contract for logistical support of U.S. military operations in Iraq, the department said. The lawsuit also alleged overbilling by a KBR subcontractor in the Balkans under a military contract. (Reporting by James Vicini, Editing by Leslie Gevirtz)
