Diplomats targeted
Lamani, a Moroccan, is the last Arab diplomat working in Baghdad, with ambassadors from other nations performing their duties from the Jordanian capital of Amman.
Lamani, 56, was appointed in March 2006 by Arab foreign ministers with a mission of aiding national reconciliation efforts in the country which is crippled by sectarian conflict.
An Arab League national reconciliation conference following a similar meeting held in Cairo in November 2005 has been continuously delayed.
Arab diplomats in Baghdad have been repeatedly targeted by armed groups, with the Egyptian ambassador-designate kidnapped and murdered in July 2005 and an Emirati diplomat kidnapped in May 2006.
