BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- The Iraqi government will expel all foreign journalists from the country next week, Iraqi officials said Thursday.

The move comes after furious complaints from the Iraqi government about the reporting of several foreign journalists on assignment in the country.

Iraqi officials said that after the foreign journalists' dismissal they will admit a small number back at some point under tough new rules.

at an Associated Press Report ( not exactly pro-Iraqi)
another piece of CNN rabble-scribble. Note how "all" is now "some" and "expelled" is apparently only "visa not renewed". Anyone who's travelled much outside the West that getting visas renewed legally, inside the country, is often a major hassle.
How are the Iraqi Press Corps doing in the USA? Anyone know?
