Three People to Be Arrested for Role in Assassination Attempt on Iraqi PM
By Staff, Agencies
The Iraqi authorities agreed on the arrest of three people involved in the attack on the home of Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, the Shafaq News agency reported on Tuesday, citing a political source.
The decision came after al-Kadhimi said that those behind the assassination attempts on him were well known to him and would be exposed.
The arrest was agreed on during the premier’s meeting with President Barham Salih, President of the Supreme Judicial Council Faiq Zaidan and Secretary-General of the Hezbollah Brigades Abu Hussein al-Hamidawi, the news agency said.
Those subject to the arrest will be referred to the competent courts, Shafaq News said.
The assassination attempt was undertaken early on Sunday when a drone targeted al-Kadhimi's residence in Baghdad. He later tweeted that he was fine. Several of al-Kadhimi’s security guards were reportedly injured as well.
