Press Release Regarding The Attack Perpetrated In The Iraqi Town Of Tuz Khormato , 09.06.2014

No: 194, 9 June 2014

We have learned with great sorrow that at least thirty people, including many of our Turkmen brethren lost their lives and more than a hundred people were injured as a result of the bomb attacks perpetrated today against a police checkpoint near political party buildings in the densely Turkmen-populated district of Tuz Khormato in Iraq's Saladin Province. We wish God’s mercy upon those who lost their lives and patience and fortitude to their families, and hope for a speedy recovery for those injured.
