of the Al-Wataniyah (National) Coalition Ayad Allawi called for an urgent
review of security plans, saying that "the words of condemnation stand
helpless" in the face of the horrific terrorist act which addressed worshipers
in Baghdad's Baladiyat neighborhood.
"I call for an urgent review of the security measures and plans to combat and eradicate terrorism," Allawi said.
He also called for naming the security ministers "for the benefit of the homeland and the citizen," away from the political, partisan, and personal interests.
At least three people were killed and more than 15 others injured Friday in a bomb attack at a Shiite mosque in eastern Baghdad, an Interior Ministry source said, denying initial reports of suicide bombing.
