Yesterday (in the item immediately below this one) I recorded a telling experience I had in Arbil in Iraqi Kurdistan a year ago when I met Najim Abd-Jasem, the Iraqi Trade Union leader who has recently been brutally murdered by extremist militia.
The following day our delegation moved by road from Arbil to Sulaymaniah. I posted an item about this some time ago and I have now slightly amended it and made it more reader friendly. As the events it records happened exactly a year ago today, I provide a link to it here. It is called "Another 4th April".
