Violence Continues and Iraqi PM Prepares to Unveil Reconciliation Plan

  • VOA News

Iraq's prime minister says he is prepared to present his national reconciliation plan to the Iraqi parliament as violence continues elsewhere in the country.

Iraqi police said a roadside bomb killed a local intelligence chief and his two guards in the northern city of Kirkuk today on Saturday.

In another development, the U.S. military says an American soldier was killed Saturday in a bomb attack in central Baghdad.

North of the capital, in Tikrit, protests erupted after U.S. forces detained a top Sunni religious leader and at least two of his sons. Sheikh Jamal Abdel Karim al-Dabaan and his sons were released several hours later.

Meanwhile, political sources say Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki will announce his national reconciliation plan to parliament Sunday.

Mr. al-Maliki's office said the 28-point plan will offer some insurgents amnesty in an attempt to bring militant groups to the negotiating table.
