Nouri-al-Maliki: living between Baghdad's Fortified Green Zone and London

While Iraqis lack medical care, doctors, medicines, basic necessities and while Iraq is in total chaos the Iraqi "Prime Minister", left for London on Sunday, for a medical “check-up” (he was in London back in December for medical treament). He probably got a big fright when the Green Zone was mortared on Saturday morning!

National - PM's trip to London to resume medical examinations – advisor

Baghdad, (VOI) – Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki left Baghdad on Sunday for London to resume regular medical examinations, the premier's media advisor said.
"Maliki's examinations in London would complete the previous checkup that showed he is enjoying good health. The prime minister is not suffering from any indisposition," Yassin Majid told Aswat al-Iraq – Voices of Iraq – (VOI).
"The prime minister, who is accompanied by two physicians who were with him during his first visit to London, will return to Baghdad in a few days," Majid said.
Earlier on Saturday the semi-official TV station al-Iraqiya said that Maliki flew to London for routine medical examinations. The channel did not give more details.
Maliki's first recuperative visit to London was paid on December 29, 2007.
