Peshmerga front line positions continue to be threatened
by Ansar al-Islam. Following US tomahawk missile attacks last night,
the Islamic extremist group Ansar al-Islam killed three Kurdish peshmerga
fighters, Australian journalist Paul Moran who was working for ABC,
and wounding many more, when a suicide bomber detonated a car bomb
at a checkpoint. Until yesterday the checkpoint had been under the
control of Komala Islami Kurdistan.
