Iraqi Prime Minister survives exploding drone assassination attempt

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi escaped an assassination attempt on Sunday after an explosive-laden drone targeted his residence in Baghdad, the country’s military said.

Seven of Kadhimi’s security personnel were injured, according to Ministry of Interior Spokesman General Saad Maan.

The Iraqi military said that Al-Kadhimi was unharmed and in good health, and that security forces were “taking the necessary measures in connection with this failed attempt.”

The Arab League, an organization of 22 Middle Eastern and African countries and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), condemned the “heinous assassination attempt”.
