Iraq Sunni MP killed by suicide bomber

BBC News Middle East 15 January 2013

A Sunni member of parliament has been killed by a suicide bomber in the Iraqi city of Fallujah, officials have said. The bomber pretended he was greeting MP Eifan Saadoun al-Issawi and then blew himself up. Two bodyguards also died.

The attack come just days after the Sunni Finance Minister, Rafie al-Issawi, survived an assassination attempt as he travelled to the city.

Will these attacks on Sunni officials spark the fires that burn the cities?
