Michael did a telephone report on the bombing of Shia pilgrims and the Turkish incursion into Kurdistan. From the show's website:

Iraq bombing

Women and children were among the victims in a suicide bombing in Iraq which killed up to 40 people. The attack focused on Shiite pilgrims travelling to a major religious ceremony south of Baghdad. There are now fears this could revive the cycle of sectarian violence. The suicide bombing also coincides with mounting tensions in Northern Iraq after Turkish troops crossed the border to hunt down Kurdish separatists.
