Iraq’s Prime Minister Targeted in Assassination Attempt

BAGHDAD—An explosive-laden drone attacked the home of Iraqi Key Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi in Baghdad early Sunday in what Iraqi safety officers said was an assassination endeavor, marking an escalation of tensions concerning the country’s govt and Iran-backed militia teams.

Mr. Kadhimi, who addressed the country on tv soon just after the assault, said he wasn’t damage. The assault followed threats against Mr. Kadhimi from an Iran-backed militia chief, though the armed teams denied obligation and no 1 immediately claimed credit score.
