MOSUL, Iraq, Dec. 14 (UPI) -- The dean of Iraq's Mosul University's School of Medicine was wounded Sunday when gunmen fired on him in Mosul, a source says.
An anonymous police source said Dr. Muzahem al-Khayyat was wounded when the unidentified gunmen fired on the scholar from a vehicle, KUNA reported. The exact medical condition of al-Khayyat was not reported, the Kuwait News Agency said.
Meanwhile, there was a report -- refuted by U.S. military officials -- that Baghdad's Green Zero area was hit with a rocket attack Sunday as U.S. President George W. Bush was visiting Iraq. An unidentified security official told KUNA a Katyusha missile struck the area, but details concerning any possible casualties or damage had not been released.
Bush was in Iraq to officially sign the U.S.-Iraqi Status of Forces Agreement governing U.S. troop withdrawals from the Middle Eastern country.
