SRSG Kubiš Condemns Double Bombings Targeting Civilians in Al-Samawa as Outrageous, Evil Act

Baghdad, Iraq, 01 May 2016 - The Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq, Mr. Ján Kubiš, expresses outrage at the deliberate targeting of civilians in two car bombings in the city of Al-Samawah in southern Iraq today.

The SRSG offers condolences to the families of the victims and wishes the injured speedy recovery.

“One of the explosions took place near a bus station, cutting down innocent passengers”, Mr. Kubiš said. “Targeting civilians in a peaceful city with such intent to kill and injure as many as possible is nothing short of a diabolical act committed by terrorists bent on achieving their sinister agenda regardless of the human cost”.

The SRSG reiterates his call on Iraqis to remain united in the face of such terrorist attacks and on the authorities to pursue and bring the perpetrators to justice.
