BAGHDAD, June 12 (KUNA) -- Security Operations at the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, announced the assassin of an Iraqi MP on Friday.
MP Hareth Al-Obeidi, head of the Concord Coalition was shot dead today as he left a mosque in Baghdad's western district of Al-Yarmouk, following Friday prayers.
Ahmed Jassim Ibrahim, 25, is the killer of Al-Obeidi, Security Operations said in a statement, in contrast to claims by Iraqi police who earlier mentioned he was only 15.
The assailant was found escaping a nearby building after he had carried out the shooting. After being discovered, he started shooting at local police also throwing a sound grenade at them, the statement added.
Security forces stationed at a checkpoint closeby managed to gun down the assailant, the statement said furthermore, without adding any further information regarding the incident.
