Car bombs attacks targeting both Shia pilgrims and the country's security forces have went off across the country today killing some 32 people.
In the town of Taji (located north of Baghdad) some four closely coordinated bomb attacks went off killing some eight people. While in the southern city of Madain a bomb went off near a Shia shrine injuring among others an Iranian pilgrim. Other attacks took place in Kut and other cities across the country. Whilst civilians were killed, most of the 32 casualties were security forces. This implies that the attackers were targeting security personnel in particular (reports BBC News and the Washington Post).
In the town of Taji (located north of Baghdad) some four closely coordinated bomb attacks went off killing some eight people. While in the southern city of Madain a bomb went off near a Shia shrine injuring among others an Iranian pilgrim. Other attacks took place in Kut and other cities across the country. Most of the 32 casualties consisted of security forces and Shiite civilians. This may mean the attack was perpetrated by Sunni extremist groups like al-Qaeda or its affiliates.
Hakim al-Zamili, a Shiite member of Iraqi's parliaments security committee was aptly quoted as saying that, "Al Qaeda's leaders have no intention of leaving this country or letting Iraqis live in peace."
More than 100 people were also injured in these series of attacks.
These latest blasts are seeing to the death toll related to violence and terrorism across Iraq near a total of 200 people.
