Iraq: there is no any cause for optimism

Three suicide car bombings struck within an hour and two parked motorcycles exploded in northern Iraq today, while gunmen in speeding cars opened fire on a crowded market in Baghdad in a &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/world/2002/11/28/40084.html ' target=_blank>series of attacks that killed at least 38 people.

Continuing violence during the past days has claimed the lives of at least four children, two US soldiers and a Sunni Muslim cleric, underscoring the rampant, random nature of an insurgency that has killed at least 810 people since the April 28 announcement of Iraq’s new Shiite-led government.

Twenty people were killed as a wide swathe of northern Iraq was hit by three suicide bombings within an hour.

A suicide bomber struck a restaurant in Tuz Khormato, 55 miles south of the northern city of Kirkuk, earlier today, killing at least 12 people, including a bodyguard of Iraq’s Kurdish deputy prime minister, Rowsch Nouri Shaways, and wounding 40, according to the Iraqi Defence Ministry and police, reports the Scotsman.

Foreign Minister &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/usa/2002/07/13/32412_.html ' target=_blank>Hoshyar Zebari voiced optimism over including disenfranchised groups, believed to be leading the insurgency, in the political process.

'All Iraqi communities would participate in that process. There would be no one marginalised at all,' he said following talks with US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice in Washington.
