2018/01/14 | 17:20

(Iraq Now News)- Najat al-Ta’i, a member of Diyala provincial council, warned Sunday of a humanitarian disaster in shantytowns in southern Baqubah, where poor families live.

In press statements, al-Ta’i said poor families in shantytowns in southern Baqubah live in tragic conditions due to the collapse of their houses under high-voltage transmission lines on the outskirts of al-Tahrir district in southern Baqubah, posing a real risk to their lives. 

Government negligence and poor planning have increased the suffering of these families, she noted, warning that a real catastrophe would take place if one of the high-voltage transmission lines collapsed.

Ta’i also called on the local government to save the families which live in shantytowns and put an end to their suffering.
