Army general killed, 14 wounded in Iraqi violence
so sez a CNN crawl... but for hours, there has been nothing further on it.. Of course people watching the crawl will stay tuned, in case the actually report on the story, instead of "how to pick an Easter hat", or "what the pope had to say" or " Will & Kate's wedding", or "just about anything else"..

Of course, further digging reveals that it was an IRAQI general, so we pretty much know now that there will be no reporting on it unless you look for it online, which I did..(story below)..

Iraqi-anything, seems to be a total non-story these days, since Libya came along. Warmongers love the excitement of the "new" war.. I'm surprised that the "other Lindsay": and McCain are not shown wearing bibs (to catch all the salivation)...

Army general killed, 14 wounded in Iraqi violence
From Mohammed Tawfeeq, CNN
April 24, 2011 3:34 p.m. EDT

Baghdad (CNN) -- An Iraqi army general was killed Sunday when a bomb attached to his car exploded while he was driving in western Baghdad, officials with the nation's interior ministry said. Gen. Abdulghani Mohammed died in the incident in the al-Jamia neighborhood Sunday morning, ministry officials said.

Elsewhere, four people, including two police officers, were wounded Sunday afternoon when a roadside bomb exploded at a police checkpoint outside the Sacred Heart Church in central Baghdad's Karrada district, interior ministry officials said.

The checkpoint was set up to provide security for the church and its congregation on Easter, the officials said. Iraqi forces have tightened security measures at churches around the country in the wake of an October 31 siege on Our Lady of Salvation Church, in which 51 worshippers and two priests were killed. Three other civilians were wounded in eastern Baghdad when a roadside bomb exploded in a commercial area, ministry officials said.

And seven others were wounded Sunday night when a roadside bomb struck an Iraqi army patrol in northeastern Baghdad, according to the ministry.

1. you should clarify that it was an Iraqi general in your headline.
That is why it is not being covered.

You can bet your ass that it would be all over the place if it was an American General.
