MOSCOW, February 11 (RIA Novosti) - The ambassador of Poland in Iraq emerged unhurt after an explosive device went off near his car in northern Iraq, GlobalPost.com reported.

A spokesman for the Polish Foreign Ministry said the incident took place on Saturday noon. Ambassador Lech Stefaniak was among passengers of two cars that were en route to Baghdad, when a mine exploded near the northern city of Kirkuk.

The vehicles received minor damages in the blast, the spokesman said, adding that the important thing is that no one was injured.
