BAGHDAD - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki said on Saturday an Arab League summit would take place as scheduled in Baghdad next month, despite security fears after violence killed at least 60 people this week.

Maliki's announcement came after al Qaida's affiliate in Iraq threatened a new wave of attacks against Shi'ite Muslims, whom the Islamist militant group accuses of persecuting Sunni Muslims in post-Saddam Iraq.

The Islamic State of Iraq, an umbrella group for al Qaida-linked Sunni insurgents, claimed responsibility for a string of coordinated attacks that mainly targeted police forces in Shi'ite areas and killed at least 60 people across the country on Thursday.
