Iraq president names intel chief as PM

Iraqi President Barham Salih has named intelligence chief Mustafa al-Kadhimi as prime minister-designate, state television reports.

Kadhimi was named shortly after the previous designated prime minister, Adnan al-Zurfi, withdrew his candidacy after failing to secure enough support to form a government.

Zurfi made his announcement in a statement on Thursday.
