Kurdish Weatherman Suffers Snowball Attack as He Reports on Unusual Winter Storm

A TV weatherman fell victim to a snowball attack while reporting on snow that hit many areas of Iraq in mid-February, including parts of Iraqi Kurdistan.

The weatherman for the local outlet Rudaw traveled to a particularly snowy stretch of road on February 13, according to the network.

Rudaw told Storyful that this footage was taken near Sulaymaniyah, in eastern Kurdistan.

While he was speaking to camera, people nearby good-naturedly fired snowballs at him.
