BAGHDAD (Dispatches) -- Several senior Iraqi officials named in a New York Times report denied on Monday that they were close to Iran or that they had given sensitive information to its government.
Salim al-Jabouri, the speaker of Iraq’s Parliament in 2014 and 2015, questioned the timing of the article and said it might have been published "to incite the street” against the government, which is facing weeks of violent riots.
