A suicide bomber blew himself up this morning inside the Iraqi Parliament building, which is located in the “Green Zone.” The New York Times reports that eight people were killed in the blast, including at least two parliament members, with at least 23 people injured.
A member of the parliament, Jalaluddin al-Saghir, was being interviewed by a reporter from Alhurra TV when the bomb exploded, and the network’s video crew caught his reaction to the blast as well as the smoky, chaotic aftermath inside the building as people tried to determine who had been hurt.
