More UK casualties

A British bomb disposal expert has become the latest casualty in Iraq:

Mr Rimell, who was working for the British-based charity Mines Advisory Group (MAG), was driving in a vehicle with the distinctive MAG emblem when the gunmen struck.

The 53-year-old’s bodyguard Salem Ahmed Mohammed was left in a critical condition.

I note that his bodyguard was probably Iraqi, does this show a new level of determination on the part of the attackers?
