It has been recently found that giant magnetoresistance can also be obtained in metallic films containing magnetic particles. Based on spin-dependent scattering, we propose a model that allows us to explain various features of the magnetoresistance and to predict new features. The model is further extended to include the temperature dependence of the magnetoresistance.
