Iraq’s top leader Ali al-Sistani said in a Friday sermon delivered by one of his representatives that Iraq’s leaders should focus on defeating an oppressive organization rather than the outcome of parliamentary elections.

“It is not right to overlook this and concern about the results of the elections and the holding of alliances and conflict on positions and sites, but the requirements of the elimination of terrorists and the provision of protection and security of citizens in different regions and provinces,” said Abdul-Mahdi Karbalaii, Sistani’s representative in the speech that followed in the city of Karbala.

A grouping of members of the Iraqi security forces was abducted and six of them showed up in an online video on Saturday threatening to kill them within three days if the government did not release female prisoners.

But the Iraqi security authorities announced yesterday the killing of eight men by a hustler and throwing bodies on the road in the province of Salah al-Din.
