1 November 2010 – The United Nations top envoy in Iraq today strongly condemned last night’s terrorist attack on a Catholic Church in Baghdad that reportedly took dozens of lives, as he reaffirmed the need to speed the formation of a government in order to boost security in the country.

“[A]cts of violence targeting the Iraqi people, of all different backgrounds, continue to claim lives on a daily basis,” Ad Melkert, Special Representative of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in Iraq, said in a statement.
