Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham on Tuesday condoled with the Iraqi government and nation, particularly the country’s religious leaders and seminary schools on the demise of Ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad Bahrololoum.
Afkham sympathized with the great family of Ayatollah Bahrololoum.
She hailed Ayatollah Bahrololoum’s role in fighting Baath regime of former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussain.
Ayatollah Bahrololoum, one of the opponents of Saddam Hussain, had to live outside Iraq during the rule of Baath regime.
He returned to Iraq in 2003 after the fall of Saddam Hussain’s regime. He was twice elected as the head of Iraqi Governing Council.
