TOKYO_An official vehicle carrying Japan's acting ambassador to Iraq was hit
by bullets on Thursday in Baghdad, but there was no injuries, the Foreign
Ministry said.

It was not immediately clear whether the shot was a stray bullet or
specifically aimed at the diplomat.

The bullet cracked the vehicle's windshield when it hit the vehicle early
afternoon near the embassy in Baghdad, the ministry said in a statement.
