Iraq - Egyptian ambassador killed

‘Al Qaeda in Iraq’ has said that the Egyptian ambassador Ihab al-Sharif, kidnapped last week, has been killed. Egypt is seen as one of the leaders in the Arab world to be trying to establish embassies and have encouraged others to send ambassadors. This, in the eyes of fundamentalists and insurgents, makes them a target for recognizing the new state of Iraq.
