US President, UK PM and UN chief condemn drone assassination attempt on Iraqi Prime Minister

United Nations chief António Guterres, US President Joe Biden, and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson have condemned the terrorist attack that targeted the residence of Iraq’s Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi. Earlier yesterday, al-Kadhimi escaped unhurt an assassination attempt by a booby-trapped drone that landed on his residence.

The assassination attempt came amid protests by followers of political parties rejecting last month’s election results.

President Joe Biden has said that he was relieved that al-Kadhimi was not injured and commended his leadership. The US President further reiterated US assistance to Iraq’s security forces to investigate and identify those responsible for the terror attack.

Meanwhile, Iraqi security forces found two unexploded projectiles over the residence of Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi, who survived an assassination attempt by a booby-trapped drone earlier in the day.
