The European Union has extended for 18 months its training mission for Iraqi police and judicial officials, the head of the operation said Tuesday, insisting it was making progress in the face of violence, malpractice and sectarianism. "Whilst I am not naive and I am not idealistic, I do believe that the European Union through this mission is contributing to some of the positive developments within Iraq," said Stephen White, a former assistant chief of police in Northern Ireland who has headed the EU mission since its launch in 2005. White said 1,273 senior Iraqi judges, prosecutors, police and prison officers had passed through training courses organized in Europe on subjects such as forensics, managing murder investigations, prison standards and human rights.
