PM makes tour to inspect projects in Basra


Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi made a tour to inspect accomplishment in several service projects, as he arrived on Sunday in Basra.

A statement by Abdul-Mahdi’s office said the tour was made at projects of water and sewage in several regions including the Yassin Kheibat area.

Abdul-Mahdi listened to detailed explanation about the projects that will offer services to those regions. He also instructed doubling the effort to accomplish the projects soon.

Unrest first erupted in July over poor government services but intensified in September before dwindling in recent months.

Residents in Basra say they have been driven onto the streets by corruption and misrule that have allowed infrastructure to collapse, leaving no power or safe drinking water.
