UN Secretary-General escapes Iraq blast unharmed
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was unharmed, but ducked behind the podium after a rocket or mortar landed near Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki’s office today while the two men were speaking to reporters at a Baghdad news conference.
Small chips of debris floated down from the ceiling above the UN chief after the big explosion rattled the building in the Green Zone.
Yes, inside the Green Zone. The Fort Knox of Iraq.
Note to military: You need not mention the insurgents are getting better, more sophisticated, smarter and dangerous. Its obvious as hell.
