Assassination Bid On Iraq PM

Two armed drones targeted the residence of Iraq’s Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi at the Green Zone in Baghdad. He escaped and later appeared before TV cameras with his left hand bandaged. Seven of his guards were also injured. Pro-Iran Shia militias that lost heavily in the recent parliamentary elections are suspected of involvement in the attack.
