NEW YORK, 28th June, 2016 (WAM) The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General (SRSG) for Iraq, Jan Kubis, strongly condemns the suicide bombing at a mosque in Abu Ghraib west of Baghdad on Monday 27 June 2016 in which a number of civilians were killed or wounded.

He expresses his condolences to the families of those killed and wished the injured a speedy recovery.

“This cowardly attack, happening during the holy month of Ramadan as worshippers were gathered for evening prayers, shows the terrorists’ total disdain for Islam and rejection of its values,” Kubis said.
