    Basra police chief says city out of control

    According to this article, from today's Guardian, the Basra police chief has stated that his force does not have control of the city, and that he doesn't trust most of the force:

    Speaking to the Guardian, General Hassan al-Sade said half of his 13,750-strong force was secretly working for political parties in Iraq's second city and that some officers were involved in ambushes. Other officers were politically neutral but had no interest in policing and did not follow his orders, he told the Guardian. "I trust 25% of my force, no more."
