Sunni Arab lawmakers in Iraq are threatening to boycott the legislature until kidnappers free a colleague who was abducted on Saturday in Baghdad.
Iraqi police say another lawmaker -- a Shi'ite -- survived an assassination attempt today, Sunday when a bomb exploded near this convoy in the Karrada district of the capital.
Also today on Sunday, at least four people died in violence in Baghdad and to the north, in the town of Rashad near Kirkuk.
Meanwhile, Iraqi officials say Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the slain leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, has been buried in an undisclosed location in the country. He was killed June seventh by a U.S. airstrike northeast of Baghdad.
Zarqawi's family had called for his body to be returned to his homeland of Jordan for burial. But the government in Amman had refused the request for security reasons. The U.S. military confirmed the burial but declined to release any details.
