U.S. Condemns Recent Bombings in Baghdad
The U.S. Mission in Iraq condemns yesterday’s bombing of the Communist Party headquarters in Baghdad, as well as the bombing that took seven lives in Baghdad’s al-Shula neighborhood on May 23. Such craven acts of political violence and terrorism have no place in a modern, democratic Iraq. We urge the Iraqi people to reject these attempts to sow fear and division during the sensitive government formation period.
We will continue to support the Government of Iraq in doing everything in its power to ensure peace and security for all Iraqis during this holy month of Ramadan.
