“IRAQI TURKMEN FRONT WASHINGTON REPRESENTATION
On Sunday, March 14,th, 2004, there has an assasination attempt on the president of the Iraqi Turkmen Front Dr. Farouk Abdullah at Khalis, 50 Km north of Baghdad while on his way to Kirkuk.
A remotely controlled roadside bomb exploded, Dr, Farouk escaped with light injuries at his leg while two of his bodyguard had several injuries.
We strongly condemn this act of terror which is aimed at silencing the Turkmen voice in Iraq, on the contrary it will strengthen the Turkmen will to work much harder so that all Turkmen rights in Iraq be fulfilled.
