Iraq: Insurgents kill the Governor of Mosul

The governor of the Iraqi city of Mosul and two of his bodyguards were killed by unidentified attackers on Wednesday as he was driving in a convoy of vehicles toward Baghdad, an Interior Ministry official said.

According to Reuters, the assailants threw a grenade at the vehicle carrying the governor, Osama Kashmoula, and fired automatic weapons, the official said.

"He was on his way to Baghdad with a security escort of four cars, when the attackers in another car pulled up beside his vehicle and threw a grenade, and then shot at his car," said the official, who declined to be named.
