Iraqi authorities have arrested the man in charge of the mess hall in Numaniya, where hundreds of Iraqi police fell ill after eating their evening meal on Sunday, breaking their daily Ramadan fast.
Initial lab test results of the food and water suggest it was negligence by the contractor, not an attack, Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. General Abdul Karim Khalaf said.
The contractor was arrested and the cooks are being interrogated, he said.
