Dozens Killed in Iraq Ahead of Arab League Summit

A string of suicide attacks and car bombings struck Iraq on Tuesday, killing dozens just a week before a highly anticipated gathering of Arab leaders, according to The New York Times.

The attacks killed at least 39 people in a half-dozen cities across the country.

 

Two explosions ripped through the capital — one of them outside the gates of the Foreign Ministry, where dozens of Iraqi diplomats and staff members are working around the clock to finalize the details of the $500 million Arab League summit, set to begin next Tuesday. The security perimeter around the ministry was not breached, according to The Times.
