UN Envoy condemns recent wave of attacks in Baghdad, concerned by continuous appalling violence across Iraq

Baghdad, 18 September 2013 - In an appeal for restraint after the senseless attacks that killed dozens of innocents yesterday in Baghdad and across the country, the Deputy Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (DSRSG) for Iraq, Mr. Gyorgy Busztin, calls for an immediate halt to violence in which the country is mired.

“Yesterday’s wave of attacks adds to dozens of others recently and such violence has unfortunately become the everyday fare of too many Iraqi citizens, trying to go about their daily lives; this must stop immediately,” Mr. Busztin said. “The recent escalation of violence all over Iraq is extremely worrying and jeopardizes efforts at political reconciliation. The authorities should do their utmost to ensure that measures are put in place to stop the bloodshed,” he added.

DSRSG Busztin extends his sincere condolences to the families of the victims and reminds that each citizen should have the right to live in an environment free of fear.
