This Week in Iraq

Suicide bomb spree kills 20 inside Baghdad

In Baghdad [Friday], the military reported seven blasts, at least three of which were suicide car bombs. Reuters journalists saw the aftermath of five big explosions, all of which Iraqi police sources said were suicide car bombs.


On Thursday, a man detonated an explosives belt he was wearing at the same time a car bomb went off near a police station in central Baghdad, wounding at least nine, police and hospital officials said. Police said they shot dead a third attacker wearing an explosive belt at the same location, just outside the Green Zone where the U.S. Embassy and government offices are located.

On Wednesday, a suicide car bomb exploded next to U.S. troops handing out candy and toys in a Shiite neighborhood in Baghdad, killing up to 27 people, including 18 children and teenagers, and a U.S. soldier.


The radio militia hasn't commented on this at all.
