Dozens die in Iraq market blasts
Wednesday 04 July 2012
At least 44 people were killed in bomb attacks on markets yesterday. Police said they bore the hallmarks of sectarian attacks on Shia Muslims by al-Qa'ida Sunni militants.
A bomb in a small truck exploded in a market in Diwaniya, killing 40 people, and other blasts killed four more near Karbala, police said.
The Diwaniya bombing was near a Shia mosque where pilgrims gather on their way to Karbala to celebrate the birth of one of their most important imams, al-Mahdi.
