Arab States Weekly Review March 17th – 23rd 2012

Around 30 separate bombs were set off across Iraq on a single day, leaving over 50 people dead. The attack was described by some as an attempt to block the holding of an Arab League summit in Baghdad on March 29th.

Three bombs struck security targets in Damascus and Aleppo (Syria), killing 30 people.

Hana Shalabi, a Palestinian activist detained without charge by Israel, was said by a medical rights group to be facing “immediate risk of death” after more than 30 days of hunger strike.
