Bomb hits Iraqi defense minister's convoy

A bomb struck the acting Iraqi defense minister's convoy “Saadun al-Dulaimi” west of Baghdad, wounding two of his guards and damaging one of the vehicles.

Iraqi defense ministry said It didn’t specify whether or not Dulaimi was travelling in the convoy, but a senior official told AFP that he was not present at the time of the attack.

The bombing comes after five senior officers, among them a divisional commander, and 10 other soldiers were killed on Saturday during an operation against militants in Anbar, the same province in which Dulaimi's convoy was travelling when it was attacked.
