Foreign Office Minister condemns bomb attacks in Iraq
Speaking following reports of bomb attacks in Baghdad and southern Iraq which killed scores of people, Minister for the Middle East, Alistair Burt said
"I was appalled to hear of the bombings across Iraq today which mainly targeted Shia pilgrims in Baghdad and elsewhere. I strongly condemn these cowardly attacks and offer my deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives and those injured. I urge all political blocs in Iraq to work together and focus on bringing security and stability to all of Iraq."
