SRSG Martin Kobler strongly condemns the atrocious attacks against worshipers

Baghdad, 27 October 2012 – The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (SRSG) for Iraq, Mr. Martin Kobler, condemned in the strongest terms the series of attacks that killed and injured a number of innocent people today, all the more so since it targeted pilgrims practicing their religious duties, either visiting relatives, the graves of dead family members, or shrines during the Holy Eid-al-Adha. كوردی

 

“This is an atrocious act of violence against innocent worshipers of various faiths,” Mr. Kobler said, expressing his deep condolences to the families of the victims and wishing a speedy recovery for the wounded. “The targeting of worshipers is an appalling crime,” the SRSG added, urging those responsible for the attacks to show the utmost and due respect for the Iraqis during these holy days.
