(06-12 19:23)

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the spectacular seizure of Iraqi cities by advancing jihadist fighters was a clear sign of the ''total failure'' of the US-led invasion.
''The events in Iraq illustrate the total failure of the adventure involving the United States and Britain,'' Lavrov said, according to the Itar-Tass news agency. ''The unity of Iraq is at risk.''-- AFP
