UN Security Council condemns bomb attacks in Baghdad
The UN Security Council strongly condemned on Tuesday the bomb attacks in Baghdad that have caused numerous deaths and injuries earlier in the day, Xinhua reported.
In a statement read out by Bukina Faso's UN Ambassador Michel Kafando, the 15-member body expressed deep condolences to the families of the victims and reaffirmed their support for the people and government of Iraq.
The council underlined the need to bring those responsible for "these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice," and urged all states to cooperate actively with Iraqi authorities in this regard.
At least 120 people have died and more than 440 others were injured as a result of five bombings which occurred within minutes of each other across the city.
