Four people were killed today when a car bomb exploded in front of the Baghdad office of Arabic-language satellite TV channel Al-Arabiya, Iraq police said.
Majid Hamid, a Baghdad-based correspondent for the Saudi Arabia-owned, Dubai-based channel, said the bomber was able to pass through the first security gate and detonated the bomb near the channel's office.
He said some guards suffered serious injuries, but did not specify how many.
