0

BAGHDAD: Violence in Iraq is at its worst level since 2008, figures showed on Friday, as premier Nuri al-Maliki was to appeal for Barack Obama’s help to combat a spike in militancy. New figures released by the ministries of health, interior and defence showed that violence last month left 964 people dead – 855 civilians, 65 policemen and 44 soldiers. The overall death toll was the highest since April 2008, when 1,073 people were killed.
