Two bomb attacks in Baghdad on Monday killed at least 15 civilians and injured several dozen. Most of the victims were marking the Shi’a religious observance of Arbaeen.
The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the attacks. He expressed his condolences to the families of the victims, and wished a speedy recovery to those injured.
The Secretary-General stresses that no cause can justify such acts of terrorism. He hopes that the perpetrators of these heinous crimes will be swiftly brought to justice.
The UN Secretary-General and other top UN officials are doing nothing to stop terrorism and other crimes except issuing statements which are utterly useless and meaningless. The UN officials are concerned only about their own luxurious lifestyles.
In the given situation, the UN member countries must challenge the role of this intergovernmental organization and stop financing it. All the funds given by the member states are being squandered by the UN which is now overstaffed with unskilled officials. Believe me, the UN has lost its relevance.
Ban reiterates the commitment of the United Nations and the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq to support the Government and people of Iraq in bringing an end to sectarianism and fostering a spirit of national unity and reconciliation.
