Iraq: Six more killings

August 21, 2013

SIX people have been killed in attacks in Iraq, as gunmen defy massive government operations to stem the violence.

Security forces have mounted some of the biggest operations targeting militants since the 2011 withdrawal of American troops, but analysts and diplomats say Iraq is not tackling the root causes of the unrest.

Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has nevertheless vowed to press on with the campaign to combat the country’s worst bloodshed since 2008, with more than 3500 people killed since the start of this year.
