 And, a lot of casualties. At least 270 civilians, security forces and militants were killed and another 89 were wounded in recent violence. Most of it is highly plausible. The government also reported killing 270 militants in just one air strike in Falluja. That figure is probably a very rough estimate.


Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki appeared on television alongside ethnic minority leaders in a call for national unity.

The government earlier accused Saudi Arabia of promoting genocide by supporting Sunni militants.
