4 wounded as Iranian Embassy convoy ambushed in Baghdad

Gunmen ambushed an Iranian Embassy convoy in Baghdad, wounding three Iranians, including two diplomats, and an Iraqi, a spokesman said Friday. The convoy was en route to a revered Shiite shrine in the northern neighborhood of Kazimiyah when it came under fire, Iranian Embassy spokesman Manoucher Taslimi said. The attack occurred about 5:30 p.m. Thursday as the convoy approached a bridge that links Kazimiyah with the predominantly Sunni area of Azamiyah, according to Taslimi. He said those wounded, including two Iranian diplomats and an Iranian and an Iraqi administrative employee, were in stable condition.
