Sunday: 6 Iraqis Killed, 21 Wounded

The Iraqi Supreme Court ordered parliament to reconvene despite the failure of party leaders to form the new government. Meanwhile, six Iraqis were killed and 21 more were wounded in and near Mosul. Oddly, no other reports surfaced.

Adding a new twist to the selection of the next prime minister, Iraqiya politician Safia al-Suheil called for an investigation into Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s suggested ties to torture and deaths squads as found in Friday’s dump of secret documents by the Wikileaks organization. Similar calls are being made in Britain and the United States over accusations that Britons and Americans also participated in war crimes or at least turned a blind eye to it.

In Mosul, a car bomb targeting a police station killed five bystanders and wounded 21 others outside a medical complex. Four security personnel were arrested for failing to stop the bombing.

A former Iraqi intelligence officer was killed during a raid on his home Nimrod. His son was the likely suspect the troops were after.
