Baghdad 29 July 2013 – The Acting Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq, Mr. Gyorgy Busztin expressed his deep concern following today’s new wave of car bombings that killed and injured dozens more Iraqis.

“I am deeply concerned about the heightened level of violence which carries the danger that the country falls back into sectarian strife, the UN Envoy said.

“Iraq is bleeding from random violence, which sadly reached record heights during the Holy month of Ramadan”, Mr. Butszin noted, urging all political leaders to take immediate and decisive action to stop the senseless bloodshed.
