    40,000 troops to patrol Baghdad as 14 killed
    Friday 27-05-2005


    BAGHDAD: Iraq’s government said on Thursday it would deploy 40,000 Iraqi troops in Baghdad to combat insurgents who have killed over 600 Iraqis in a month.

    ... “These operations will aim to turn the government’s role from defensive to offensive,” Iraq’s Interior Minister Bayan Jabor said at the same news conference. Despite the announcement, attacks persisted nationwide, with at least 14 people killed in bomb blasts and shootings.

    ... The addition of 40,000 Iraqis to the estimated 10,000 US troops already serving in Baghdad would create a massive force. “We shall not leave any place for terrorists or those who shelter them and incite terrorism in Iraq,” said Dulaimi, adding, “We will stand against all those who try to shed Iraqi blood and will implement the law with everything we’ve got.”
