BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) — At least two suicide attackers killed at least 60 people Friday near a holy Shia shrine in Baghdad, according to Iraq’s Interior Ministry and medical sources.
At least 125 others were wounded when the bombers struck on two roads leading to the Imam Musa al-Kadhim shrine, one of the holiest in the Shia Islam religion.”
The attacks come a day after 87 were killed by attacks by suicide bombers in Diyala province and Baghdad. Most of those victims were also Shia.
The relative peace purchased in Iraq by U.S. government payouts to Sunni militias seems to be ending as those payments end. And rather than respond through politics or the ballot box, the Sunnis are reverting to the bomb.
Good thing we’ve already declared victory, right guys?
