The senior United Nations envoy to Iraq, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative Ashraf Qazi, condemned weekend bombings which targeted hundreds of civilians.

Qazi “denounced in the strongest terms the bombings in Karbala, and Al Jaderyia Bridge in Baghdad on Saturday, 14 April, and Al-Ottaeefia neighborhood on Sunday, 15 April, which caused the death and injury of more than two hundred innocent civilians.”

Mr. Qazi described these wanton acts of deliberate violence against men, women and children while going about their daily lives as “heinous.”
