Iranian tourist killed by American air strike in Baghdad.

From Quincy Quarry News’ media brethren at Duffle Blog comes coverage of the death of an Iranian tourist at Baghdad International Airport.

The deceased, Qassim Suleimani, a middle-aged Iranian bureaucrat, was on his way to Jerusalem via Baghdad and Damascus, according to his friend Mohsen Chizari.

“Qassim was a renowned figure in his community, a good family man,” Mohsen told reporters at a press conference in Baghdad.  “He had just come to visit his friend Abu, who lives here in Baghdad.  They have been doing import-export work together for many years.  Mostly guns, but also sometimes chemical weapons and the occasional explosively-formed penetrator …”

Multiple days of morning and funeral services are planned in Tehran with what is left in the way of remains eventually interred.
