At Least 61 Killed In String Of Iraq Bombings

April 23, 2010

Baghdad (ChattahBox) – At least 61 people have been killed in a string of bombings by insurgents in Iraq, with more than a hundred reportedly injured.

No group has yet come forward to claim responsibility for the horrendous attack that targeted Shiite civilians in three different locations, but officials believe it to be the work of al Qaeda in Iraq.

It is one of the bloodiest recent attacks in the region, and has been blamed on a mixture of increasing sectarian violence due to uncertainty of the government’s future, and the deaths and capture of several key al Qaeda leaders over the last few weeks.

“We had information that they were planning attacks that would target churches, Shiite mosques and bridges, and the security forces took precautions and prepared security plans specifically for this,” Maj. Gen. Qassim Atta said earlier this week, warning of possible revenge attacks after the deaths of Abu Ayyub al-Masri and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi.

The two were killed when joint U.S. and Iraqi military operations led to the rocketing of a house they were known to be hiding in.
