MidEastWire.com Daily Iraq Monitor
Despite the more than 500 Arabic and Persian news outlets reporting stories from and about the Middle East, there is currently no affordable means for English speakers to gain access to much of this content. Mideastwire.com aims to close this gap by offering a daily email newsletter of concise, translated briefs from and about the Middle East.

Through a special arrangement with MidEastWire.com, we are able to reprint MidEastWire's "Daily Iraq Monitor" on this website. For more news from the Middle East, consider a paid subscription to MidEastWire.

Ayham al-Samarra'i, leader of the Independent Iraqis Grouping, survived an assassination attempt in the Al-Yarmuk area west of Baghdad. Al Sharqiyah correspondent said Al-Samarra'i was headed towards the headquarters of the Iraqi Islamic Party located in Al-Dakhiliyah neighbourhood in the area of Al-Yarmuk to attend a meeting of a number of political leaders, when an explosive device went off as his convoy was passing. Two of his bodyguards sustained serious injuries and were transferred to a nearby hospital for treatment.

"An explosive device targeted an Iraqi police patrol south of Baghdad today, killing two of its members and wounding another."

"Unidentified gunmen attacked four individuals, including three brothers, west of Ba'qubah, the centre of the Diyala Governorate northeast of Baghdad, killing them." - MIDEASTWIRE.COM, Middle East
