Nothing will stop him from doing his job.
That’s the message from Qasim Mohammed Abid, the governor of Anbar province in western Iraq, who has returned to work after recovering from a suicide bomb attack in December.
A man wearing an explosive vest had blown himself up near him, killing his two bodyguards, and severely injuring Abid.
He has undergone extensive treatment in Iraq, the United States, and Germany.
Abid’s return comes just four days ahead of Iraq’s national elections.
