Iraq Foreign Minister : The Green Zone "Is More Dangerous" Than The Rest Of Iraq
From 'Your New Reality' :
In a revelation that will no doubt come as a surprise to millions of people living in the slums of Baghdad, the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Hoshyar Zebari, stated that the people most at risk of being killed in his country are living and working inside the Green Zone.
Zebari said in an interview with Lateline that he lived and worked in "the Red Zone" and thought his Baghdad neighbourhood was much safer than the massive walled enclave where thousands of American and coalition forces and diplomats are based.
"In fact the Green Zone is the most dangerous place in Iraq these days," Zebari said. "So outside the Green Zone is much safer."
The Green Zone has been attacked on a near daily basis in recent weeks, with mortars, rockets and RPGs raining down so regularly that those inside the Zone have allegedly been told to wear helmets and flak jackets at all times.
