AP Iraq's Justice Minister said authorities have closed down the notorious Abu Ghraib prison west of Baghdad over security concerns. The prison is at the edge of the Sunni-dominated Anbar province, which has been engulfed in clashes between an al-Qaeda splinter group and government forces. Last July, militants attacked Abu Ghraib and another prison, setting free hundreds of inmates, including many militants.
