Al-Jazeera May Lose Baghdad Bureau

Iraq's Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zibari accused Al - Jazeera, and other Arabic language media outlets, of "incitement" while hiding behind the freedoms afforded to the media.

Aljazeera has expressed outrage after the Iraqi foreign minister attacked its coverage of events in Iraq and said he was considering closing down the channel's Baghdad bureau.

This raises a chuckle from me. Not so much that Zibari is right on - but that he made the accusation to an Al-Jazeera reporter during an interview!
