A high official in the Iraqi ministry of interior announced that crime levels in Baghdad have decreased by 40% in March in comparison with the past months,
The source has confirmed that murders, carjacking, have armed robbery levels have all decreased. The source added that the increased cooperation of the citizens in reporting suspicious and criminal elements played a great role in this improvement.
From Al-Sabah newspaper (Arabic).
This announcement came a week after officials from the pentagon announced that attacks rate against American troops have decreased in a similar ratio (40%).
It seems to me that these similar ratios suggest a correlation between crime and terrorism. What do you think?
