Iraqi Health Minister Resigns In Wake Of Deadly Hospital Fire

Last month, at least 130 people lost their lives in fire incident at Ibn al Khatib Hospital in capital Baghdad.

Iraqi Health Minister Hassan al-Tamimi resigned on Tuesday after a fire at a Baghdad hospital last month claimed 130 lives, a government statement said.
Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi has accepted the resignation, according to the Prime Ministry's media office.
According to the statement, al-Tamimi handed his resignation after an investigation committee, tasked to look into the fire incident, submitted its report to the Council of Ministers for voting.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Iraqi Council of Ministers voted on the committee's report which recommended ending services of the health minister and Baghdad's governor.
The report also recommended dismissal of the director of Ibn al-Khatib Hospital, his deputy, the civil defense officer and the Rusafa district health director.
It also issued instructions for hospitals to ensure safety of both staffers and patients.
On April 24, a fire, caused by the explosion of oxygen tanks at Ibn al-Khatib Hospital, where coronavirus patients were being treated, left 130 Iraqis dead along with dozens others injured.
