Iraq says it shared intel that France, US, Iran were targets

BAGHDAD - Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said his country's intelligence services obtained information indicating that France, the United States and Iran were among countries being targeted for attack.
He did not make clear who the prospective attacker was and provided no time frame, but the comments came after 129 people were killed in Paris on Friday by gunmen and suicide bombers in an attack claimed by Islamic State.
In comments posted online from the sidelines of talks in Vienna on ending the war in Syria on Saturday, Jaafari said the countries had been informed of the threat. A spokesman declined to provide more details.
