SRSG Kubiš describes Baghdad bombings as “despicable”

Baghdad, 31 December 2016 – The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq (SRSG), Mr. Ján Kubiš, today condemned the two bombings in Baghdad in which scores of people were killed and injured.



“On the last day of 2016 and as Iraqi people are preparing to receive the new year with hopes of peace, the terrorists struck once again at innocent civilians,” Mr. Kubiš said.

“This is an utterly despicable act and those responsible should be brought to justice as soon as possible,” the SRSG added.

“My deepest condolences go the families of those who lost their lives and my hopes for a speedy recovery to the injured,” He further added.
