BAGHDAD (AP) -- An American journalist for National Public Radio and three of his Iraqi colleagues have escaped injury after a bomb attached to their car exploded in west Baghdad.
NPR says "swift actions" by Iraqis authorities kept the team from harm.
After doing interviews in a cafe, they were stopped by Iraqi soldiers who said they'd been just been told there was a bomb underneath the armored vehicle. It exploded with the team of journalists about 15 feet away. No one was hurt. Iraqi soldiers say a man with suspected family ties to al-Qaida has been arrested.
NPR says despite the danger, it will continue covering developments in Iraq.
