Iraq's defense minister said Wednesday that security in his country was moving "in the right direction," despite continued violence in Baghdad. Abdul-Qader Mohammed Jassim al-Mifarji, in Warsaw for talks with his Polish counterpart, also criticized the media's coverage of security in Iraq, and said that safety was improving across the country. On Wednesday in Iraq, two bombs exploded in Baghdad, killing at least nine and wounding 39, a day after the president predicted that bloodshed would mostly end by year's end. Al-Mifarji also thanked Poland for helping overthrow Saddam Hussein's regime in 2003 and for helping train Iraqi troops.
