Ex-mufti Warned by Iraq to Shun Political Intrigue

The Iraq Government has warned the ex-Mufti of Jerusalem, who recently escaped to Baghdad from his exile in Lebanon, that he must refrain from political intrigue and propaganda, it is reported by the diplomatic correspondent of The Times. The Iraqi press, the correspondent adds, has not paid undue attention to the Mufti, his prestige having apparently declined still more since his flight from Lebanon.
