More than 60 Killed In Baghdad Bombings
Now that the United States military is gone Iraq may well descend into chaos.
A series of bombings hit Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least 63 people in the first big assault attack on Iraq’s capital since a sectarian crisis erupted within its government just days after the U.S. troop withdrawal.
The apparently coordinated bombings were the first sign of a violent backlash against Shi’ite Muslim Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s move to sideline two Sunni Muslim rivals, raising the risk of a relapse into the sort of sectarian bloodletting that drove Iraq to the brink of civil war a few years ago.
In addition to the killings explosions across Baghdad accounted for 194 wounded.Click here for reuse options!
