Iraqi Communist Party condemns criminal bombing of churches
In a statement given to the Iraqi press last week, the Iraqi Communist Party leader Mr Hamid Majid Mousa strongly condemned the criminal acts targeting churches in Baghdad and Mosul on August 1. He said: "These terrorist and treacherous acts are targeting the lives of innocent civilians and aim at stirring up sedition". Mr Mousa described the attacks as "desperate acts to terrorise the Iraqi people. Those responsible are exploiting the abnormal conditions in Iraq". He stressed that "these acts will end in miserable failure. Those responsible will be damned forever". "Our Iraqi people should be vigilant, pursuing the criminals and reporting on them, to enable the national security forces to combat these crimes and put an end to them", Mr Mousa said. He also called on the interim government "to take effective measures to protect the citizens and foil the evil schemes of terrorists".
