Iraq’s parliament approved the appointment of three more ministers on Monday, including the defense and interior portfolios put forward by Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi, lawmakers said.

Najah al-Shammari, Yaseen al-Yasiri and Faruq Ameen were confirmed as ministers for defence, interior and justice respectively.
