Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki linked Tuesday's deadly bombing at a leading Baghdad university with the execution of two senior members of Saddam Hussein's regime. The Shi'ite leader also said his government would do its best to protect educational institutes. In a statement issued hours after a deadly explosion killed and wounded dozens of students at Al-Mustansiriya University in north-central Baghdad, al-Maliki promised to punish those responsible. "At the time when the tails of the dead regime received a blow that buried all their fake dreams forever, when the Iraqi people turned a black page of injustice and dictatorship by giving fair punishment for criminals and mass killers, a desperate group of terrorists and Saddamists targeted an educational center," al-Maliki said in the statement.
