Turkish driver killed in Iraq: Turkey is Second After the US in Iraq Casualties

Turks working in Iraq, especially those employed to drive trucks, have been a particular target of insurgents. Another Turkish truck driver has been killed in Iraq, taking the toll of Turkish nationals who have died in the country to more than 90.
Turkey has become the second country after the US in the Iraq Casualties List.

The driver, whose identity has not yet been released, was killed when insurgents opened fire on the truck he was driving near the Iraqi town of Baiji in Northern Iraq early Friday.
