30 Killed, 61 Injured In Iraq Attacks


Thirty people have been killed and 61 wounded in a series of attacks in Iraq.

A bomb went off in a cafe in central Baghdad’s Sadriyeh market on Monday, killing 15 people and wounding 35, officials say.

In the northern city of Mosul, a suicide car bomber targeted an army special forces convoy, killing six people and injuring 18. Most of the casualties were civilians.

Attacks on two checkpoints in the city also killed two soldiers and two Kurdish Peshmerga troops and left five wounded.

In Baquba, northeast of Baghdad, a local official, two policemen and two members of the pro-government Sunni Sahwa militia were killed in a series of attacks, which also left three policemen injured.

There has been a sharp rise in attacks in Iraq in recent months, raising fears of a return to the violence that pushed the country to the brink of civil war in 2006 and 2007.

According to UN estimates, 979 people were killed in attacks in October alone.

  • Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this
    blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of
    times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!
