In the northern Iraqi city of Sulaimaniyah, a Kurdish journalist's car exploded outside his house early in the morning while he was sleep. A local policeman said it appeared to be a deliberate attack on Suran Omar, 33, who has been a critic of the semiautonomous Kurdish government's rule.
Nobody was hurt in the blast, said the policeman, who also spoke on condition of anonymity. Omar said he was not cowed. Their message of threat is received," he said. "It is a deed of cowards, and I will continue my activities."
