Parliament Approves 3 Key Ministers

By John Lee.

The Iraqi parliament has approved Prime Minister Adil Abul-Mahdi's nominees to three key ministries, according to Associated Press:

Defense: Najah al-Shammari;

Interior: Yassin al-Yassiri;

Justice: Farouq Amin Othman.

The positions have been vacant since October.

A nominee for the position of Minister for Education -- Safana al-Hamdani -- however, failed to receive enough votes.
