"Ali Faisal al-Lami, the executive director of Iraq's Accountability and Justice Commission, was shot dead by gunmen Thursday evening, said interior ministry officials. ... [The] Accountability and Justice Commission is charged with purging the government of mid- and senior-level members of ex-dictator Saddam Hussein's now-outlawed Baath Party. Separately, two Iraqi soldiers were killed and 12 people were wounded when a roadside bomb explosion struck an Iraqi army patrol in the western outskirts of Baghdad on Thursday, interior ministry officials said."
