Iraq government forms committee to investigate 'national violations'


Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al Kadhimi has ordered the formation of a committee to investigate violations of “national security” following a series of rocket attacks on the capital.

American diplomats and troops across Iraq have been targeted in dozens of missile attacks blamed by Washington on pro-Iranian armed factions in recent months.

“The prime minister chaired the first meeting of a committee to investigate violations that targeted the security and prestige of Iraq,” said a statement by his office.

Several rockets landed in a residential area near Baghdad's Green Zone overnight but did not explode early Monday raising concerns about the safety of Iraqi civilians.
