Iraq Sunni finance minister escapes bomb attack

Published: 01.13.13, 22:19 / Israel News

A roadside bomb hit Iraqi Finance Minister Rafaie al-Esawi's convoy west of Baghdad on Sunday, wounding two of his guards, sources said. It was not clear whether Esawi was the target of the bombing, however the Sunni minister has triggered protests after members of his team were arrested on terrorism charges.


Thousands of Sunni Muslims have taken to the streets over the last three weeks to demonstrate against Shi'ite Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's government and are stirring worries that Iraq could slide back into the sectarian confrontation of its recent past. (Reuters)
