24-hour lockdown

Yesterday around 12:30 p.m. I was down in another town two hours South of Suli, when the Deputy Country Director received information about an explosion in Suli.

First all expatriate staff were accounted for.

Second, we were all restricted to the compound for 24 hours.

Third they started gathering information about the explosion.

A building of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan was destroyed. Initially they suspected terrorists, but it turns out to be a gas explosion.

Nine people were injured.

Five cars were destroyed.

No deaths.

Five houses were partially demolished.
