US strongly condemns attack on convoy of Iraq''s parliament speaker Empty Iraq speaker escapes attack as 21 militants die in own bomb blast

Post by chouchou Mon 10 Feb 2014, 8:39 am

PanARMENIAN.Net - Iraq's parliament speaker narrowly escaped an attack in his hometown on Monday while 21 militants died when a car bomb they were readying mistakenly went off in renewed nationwide violence, AFP reports.

The unrest comes amid the worst protracted period of bloodshed in nearly six years, with more than 1,000 people killed last month as security forces grapple with near-daily attacks and battles with anti-government fighters in Anbar province.

Foreign leaders have pressed the Shiite-led government to reach out to the disaffected Sunni minority to undermine support for militants, but Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has taken a hard line ahead of April elections.


On Monday, a convoy carrying Parliament Speaker Osama al-Nujaifi, Iraq's most senior Sunni Arab politician, was hit by a roadside bomb in the main northern city of Mosul, his office said.
One of Nujaifi's bodyguards was wounded, a police captain and a medical source said, but the speaker himself escaped unharmed.

Mosul and surrounding Nineveh province, where Nujaifi's brother Atheel is governor, is one of Iraq's most violent areas, with attacks regularly targeting security forces, government officials as well as civilians.
Also north of Baghdad, a car bomb mistakenly went off in a militant compound, killing 21 insurgents including a suicide bomber, an anti-Qaeda militia leader and a police officer said.

The group were filming a propaganda video of the would-be suicide attacker when a technical glitch set off the car bomb in the Jilam area south of Samarra, according to Majeed Ali, the head of the Sahwa militia force in the city, and a police officer.

Jilam, a mostly rural farming area just south of the mostly-Sunni city of Samarra, has long been an insurgent stronghold.

The 8:00 am (0500 GMT) blast went off within a compound in the area, Ali and the police officer said.
Elsewhere on Monday, attacks near Baghdad in and around the towns of Mussayib and Balad left two people dead, while three militants were also killed in clashes with security forces.

More than 1,000 people were killed nationwide last month, according to government data, the highest such figure since 2008, with violence surging markedly higher in recent months. No group has claimed responsibility for most of the bloodshed, but Sunni militants including the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a powerful jihadist group, are often blamed.


Analysts say that while the vast majority of Sunni Arabs do not support militancy, frustration with the Shiite-led authorities means they are less likely to cooperate with security forces in providing intelligence against insurgents.

US strongly condemns attack on convoy of Iraq''s parliament speaker


WASHINGTON, Feb 10 (KUNA) -- The US strongly condemned Monday the attack on the convoy of the Speaker of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, Osama Nujaifi, in Nineveh province.

State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf affirmed in a statement that Nujaifi "has been a strong partner of the United States' efforts in Iraq and we are grateful that he was unharmed in the attack.

"Today's attack exemplifies the danger terrorist groups pose to all Iraqis, and the importance of Iraqi leaders from all communities working together to isolate militant groups from the broader population," she stressed.

"The United States stands with the Iraqi people and will continue to work closely with Iraqi political and security leaders to combat those who commit such senseless acts," she remarked. (end) si.bs KUNA 110030 Feb 14NNNN
