Iraqi forces

Iraqi government forces on Tuesday shut down the highway linking between Ashtar and Meridian hotels in central Baghdad.

These measures come on the heels of a statement issued by the US embassy on Monday wherein it warned of possible attacks on hotels in the Iraqi capital.

The statement added that the internal security measures adopted by the US mission may change at any time without prior notice.

On Tuesday, an Iraqi Sunni Awqaf employee was killed after a bomb which was planted in his car went off in Khan Sari neighborhood west of Baghdad.
