Another Iraqi activist was targeted on Sunday with a bomb blast in the southern province of Basra.

Media reports said an explosive device was placed outside Jasim al-Ameri’s home in Basra’s western district of Qubla.

Ameri is known as one of the prominent activists leading the anti-government protests in the oil-rich province.

He had previously received death threats from unknown sources, reports said.

Today’s attack caused only material damages.
