Iraqi PM says political crisis helps militants

Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi says a “climate of dispute” has given militants space to operate in areas under nominal government control. His government has been crippled for weeks since parties resisted a cabinet reshuffle aimed at fighting corruption. Al-Abadi dismissed claims that rival political parties were behind recent violence, and pinned the blame squarely on Islamic State. On Saturday an attack by ISIL on a town near Baghdad killed five members of the security forces and wounded 13. Suicide bombers killed at least 80 people earlier in the week, the capital’s highest number of deaths in one day so far this year.
