The governor was a key figure in the Badr Organisation, the military wing of the largest Shia Muslim party, the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council (SIIC). Khalil Jalil Hamza and police chief Maj-Gen Khaled Hassan were returning to Diwaniya city after a funeral when a bomb exploded beside their convoy. The area has seen clashes between Shia militias and security forces. The bomb blew the vehicle off the road into a water-channel as the officials returned from a tribal leader's funeral. The governor died instantly, while the police chief died in hospital.
