HRW, UN Tell Baghdad To Investigate Abuses; 40 Killed in Iraq
Human Rights Watch and the United Nations are warning the Iraqi
government that it must conduct a transparent investigation of rights abuses
during the operation to liberate Fallujah. They also want the United States to
acknowledge the abuses. The organizations fear a cursory investigation could
negatively impact the fight for Mosul.
The number of casualties in yesterday’s bombing at a shrine
in Baiji was raised
to 50 dead and 94 wounded.
On Friday, security forces killed
40 militants in Sharqat.
