Iraq to pay volunteer fighters in "hot areas" $644 per month - state TV cites PM

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki announced that volunteers who fight in "hot areas" with the country's security forces, which are battling an insurgency, will be given 750,000 Dinars ($644) per month, state television said on Thursday. Non-fighting volunteers will be paid 500,000 Dinars ($450) and all volunteers will be given an extra 125,000 Dinar ($107) food allowance per month, the statement said. Insurgents took two cities in northern Iraq last week and many soldiers have fled their posts during the continuing offensive, straining the army. #Prime Minister #Army #editing #country #security-forces #continuing #oliver-holmes #per-month #dinars
