UN’s Kubiš Strongly Condemns Cowardly Terrorist bombing in Baghdad

Baghdad, 15 January 2018 - The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq, Ján Kubiš, strongly condemns the terrorist suicide bombings in Baghdad this morning in which scores of civilians were killed or wounded.

The SRSG extends his sincere condolences to the families of those who lost their lives and wishes those injured a speedy recovery.

“This ghastly and cowardly twin suicide bombing indiscriminately targeted a busy square in Baghdad during the morning rush hour with the sole purpose of inflicting maximum casualties among innocent civilians,” Mr. Kubiš said. “The terrorists have been defeated recently on the battlefield but they continue to pose a threat to the country, in particular to ordinary citizens who continue to suffer from their attacks. I urge greater vigilance by the authorities and strengthened unity among the Iraqi people to thwart the aims of terrorists like Da’esh who seek to derail the country’s recovery after a long conflict.”
