In one of his first acts as prime minister, Iraq’s Mustafa al-Kadhimi on Monday ordered the arrest of several men in connection with shooting death Sunday of an anti-government protester.

“Under my direction, our security forces carried out operations to detain those behind assaulting protesters in Basra, based on judicial warrants,” al-Kadhimi tweeted on Monday. “I promised that those who have spilled Iraqi blood will not be allowed to rest and we are honoring that promise.”

...

Previously the head of his country's intelligence services, al-Kadhimi was appointed prime minister in April.

Known for his strong relationships with regional powers and the United States, he was the third candidate to be nominated for the position since his predecessor resigned in November of 2019.

Born in Baghdad, al-Kadhimi frequently has advocated for reform in Iraq.
