Baghdad Blogger Found, Will Blog for Guardian
London's The Guardian has tracked down Salam Pax, the blogger who wrote about life in Baghdad during the war. Until now, it was unclear whether Salam was real or in Iraq at all. According to The Guardian's Rory McCarthy, he is a 29-year-old architect living in a Baghdad suburb with his family.
Outside the country, many didn't even believe that the man who wrote only under the sobriquet Salam Pax truly existed. It was the great irony of the war. While the world's leading newspapers and television networks poured millions of pounds into their coverage of the war in Iraq, it was the internet musings of a witty young Iraqi living in a two-storey house in a Baghdad suburb that scooped them all to deliver the most compelling description of life during the war.

Now, Salam Pax will be blogging for the Guardian. His first entry will appear next Wednesday.
