"Baghdad (AINA) — Four Assyrian men were killed and another wounded yesterday when their vehicle was fired upon by unknown assailants. The men were bodyguards for Pascale Warda Esho, also an Assyrian and Iraq’s former Minister of Immigration and Refugees, and were on their way to collect Mrs. Esho.

The minister was not present at the time of the attack and is unharmed. The killed and wounded were members of the Assyrian Democratic Movement, the main Assyrian political party in Iraq."
