LONDON, July 29 (KUNA) -- Britain condemned the brutal attacks in Iraq on
Monday that killed and injured many innocent people, urging the Iraqi leaders
to put their differences aside.
"I utterly condemn the brutal attacks that took place across Iraq this
morning which killed and injured many innocent people," Foreign Office

of Ramadhan "a time of peace and reflection."

responsible to justice.
More than 100 people were killed or injured in a series of blast in Iraq
Swire also called upon "all political and religious leaders in Iraq to put
aside their differences and work together to stop terrorism."

ones and to those injured in the attacks. (end)
