Baghdad: Iraq Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki on Wednesday offered an amnesty to some backers of a sweeping militant offensive, in an apparent attempt to undercut support for the insurgents. "I announce the provision of an amnesty for all tribes and all people who were involved in actions against the state" but who now "return to their senses", excluding those involved in killings, Maliki said in televised remarks.
