Kirkuk Bombing

Hi folks,

I suppose most of you have heard about the big blast in Kirkuk on Thursday. We got word of it within an hour, and our security team put out the antennae to get more intelligence on what had happened, and any possible threat to us in Erbil.

The attack occurred in a restaurant, and was clearly targeted at local political and tribal officials.

The bad news is, lots of people were killed and wounded. And, the apparent attempt at rapprochement between the Kurds and the Arabs may be impossible now, after this tragedy.

The good news is, I never go anywhere outside of Erbil, which has a very tight security cordon around it.

Anyway, say a prayer for the victims and their families.

Love and Peace to all!
