Film deal for 'Baghdad blogger'

Film deal for Baghdad blogger. Salam Pax, whose real name has never been revealed, spent months writing an often bleakly humorous weblog which detailed the fears and hardships of Iraqi citizens. The diary began as a way for the 29-year-old architectural student to keep in touch with his friend Raed in Jordan. "It was just simple things about what was happening in Baghdad so he could stay in touch with what was happening," he told the BBC's Today programme last year. Salam Pax began a fortnightly column in The Guardian newspaper in May last year.
