Iraq Official Rips Neighbors on Insurgency

By MARIAM FAM

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A top Iraqi official accused the country's neighbors Tuesday of doing too little to stop foreigners from joining the brutal insurgency, while the U.S. combat death toll neared 1,000 with the killing of an American soldier in Baghdad.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said he "cannot imagine" how Iraq 's elections can go forward next month amid the violence.

In a speech to the Iraqi National Council, the deputy prime minister, Barham Saleh, said he was losing patience with Iraq's neighbors. He didn't single out any governments, but noted that Iraqi police had arrested a Syrian driving a car bomb packed with artillery shells and other explosives
