Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

A series of bomb attacks including suicide bombers, car bombs and improvised explosive devices have hit Iraqi cities across the country.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has strongly condemned the attacks in which 60 people have reportedly been killed and several others wounded.

Mr. Ban Ki-moon says the attacks are "particularly heinous" since they took place during the holy month of Ramadan.

He is calling on all Iraqi political leaders to continue to work together towards achieving peace through national dialogue and reconciliation.
