670 people killed in violence across Iraq in February: UN

276 Days ago

Baghdad, March 2 (IANS) A total of 670 Iraqis were killed and 1,290 others wounded in acts of terrorism, violence and armed conflict in February across Iraq, the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) said in a statement on Tuesday.

The statement said the figures included 410 civilians killed and 1,050 others wounded, Xinhua reported.

It said UN envoy for Iraq and UNAMI chief Jan Kubis strongly condemned the suicide bombings which targeted a funeral in the town of Maqdadiyah in Iraq's eastern province of Diyala, and other attacks in Abu Ghraib area and marketplace in Sadr City in Baghdad.

"These outrageous attacks in Maqdadiyah against the funeral, the bombing in Abu Ghraib and at a market in Sadr City as well as places of worship in the last few days which claimed scores of lives and injured many others have one goal: to undermine Iraqi unity," Kubis said.

"Iraqis must deny the terrorists space for achieving their objective to undermine the unity of Iraq and its people," Kubis said, calling on "the government of Iraq to make sure that the perpetrators of these crimes are swiftly brought to justice."

A month ago, UNAMI put the toll of casualties in January at 849 people killed and 1,450 others injured in terrorist attacks and violence across the country. (IANS)
