Armenian Woman Killed in Baghdad Shooting

BAGHDAD (Armenpress)–Two women died in Baghdad Tuesday when their white Oldsmobile was riddled by automatic gunfire from guards for a private security company. One of the women was identified as Maro Ohaness, an Armenian.
A priest and relatives near the scene said that all of the people in the car were Armenian Christians, who make up a small minority group in Iraq.
The Oldsmobile was shot once in the radiator, witnesses said, in front of a plumbing supply store as it approached a convoy of white sport utility vehicles 50 yards away.
As the car kept rolling, a barrage of gunfire suddenly tore through its hood, roof and windshield, as well as the passenger side.
