The Governor of Baghdad was assissinated this morning along with a bodyguard. This happening so close to the elections is not a good thing. Looks
like the US really has no control over there and I hope it doesn't get any worse. Will the elections take place and will they be correct. Will
every person vote or what will happen?
Baghdad Governor Ali Al-Haidri was assassinated Tuesday morning in Baghdad, according to an Iraq Interior Ministry official.
One of the governor's bodyguards was killed and two wounded in the road ambush, officials said.
Witnesses said there was an intense gunbattle between the assassins and the governor's bodyguards.
