British military says an attack this morning has claimed the life of a senior official of the Basra provincial council. Hazem al-Ainachi, was attacked at a checkpoint on his way to work. Two other people travelling with him at the time have also been reported to be killed.

The attack is said to have taken place in the Jubaila neighbourhood of Basra, which is regarded as Iraq's second-most significant city after the capital, Baghdad.

Mr Ainachi is the latest in a series of politicians and provincial officials to have died in suspected insurgent attacks since the US handover of key powers to an interim Iraqi administration on 28 June.

It seems to me that the security needs to be reviewed urgently Travelling by car in a built up areas where an attack could happen at any time it just isnít safe. These people should be considering using decoys or helicopters to transport them from place to place.
