UK ambassador in Iraq comments on al-Haboubi clashes

Shafaq News / The British ambassador to Baghdad, Stephen Hickey, called on the Iraqi authorities to apply "dialogue and self-control" regarding the events of Nasiriyah, Dhi Qar governorate in southern Iraq.

"I am very concerned about the escalation of violence in Nasiriyah," Hickey tweeted.
