Baghdad bomb injures news anchor in latest attack on Iraqi TV staff

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq's state-run television says one of its news anchors has been injured by a bomb attached to his car.

It's the latest targeted attack against staff members at Iraqiya television. Two Iraqiya reporters were killed early this month.

Police officials say the bomb exploded Monday as Alaa Muhsen drove through southern Baghdad. Officials at Yarmouk Hospital confirmed they were treating Muhsen.

Baghdad has been hit recently by a wave of bombings and shootings targeting security officials and government employees.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief media.
