Iraqi PM: Terrorists losing capability

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has described the latest deadly bombings in his country as a "lapse" after a peaceful period.
But he says that al-Qaida terrorists and insurgents in Iraq no longer have the capability to challenge the country's security forces.
Al-Maliki was speaking at a joint news conference with his Australian counterpart during a visit to Australia's capital.
He responded directly for the first time to two suicide bomb attacks this week in the Baghdad area that killed 63 people.
Al-Maliki said there was "no doubt that was a lapse to a good period of calm in Iraq" and insisted that terrorists "have lost their ability" to challenge the authority of government forces.
