On the day of a deadly attack against US troops, Iraqs finance minister said he saw signs of improvement in his countrys security.

Adil Abdel-Mahdi, a leading Shiite politician, said the provisional Iraqi government was trying to improve security for foreign investors and workers.

He said conditions are much better than before as a result of the US-led mission last month to drive insurgents out of the Sunni-dominated city of Fallujah.

In recent weeks, there have been no kidnappings, no hostages, so this shows that theres a blow to the terrorists in this respect. I think they will try to continue their acts, but their operations, their profile is lower today than it was before, he said at a news conference yesterday at the National Press Club.

Abdel-Mahdi did not specifically speak of yesterdays attack at a military base in the northern Iraq city of Mosul, which a US military spokesman said killed 22 people, including 15 US service members.
