15 bilbomber som drepte 60 mennesker og såret 200 var status etter Eid al-Fitr-feiringen i Irak. Ramadan har kostet 800 mennesker livet. Blodbadet i irak begynner å minne om årene 2006-07 da sunnier og shiaer drepte hverandre med alle midler.

Al-Qaida i Irak ønsker nå som da å utløse en ny sekterisk krig mellom shiaer og sunnier. Den pågår allerede i Syria. Hvis den også skulle antenne igjen i Irak kan det bli et riktig stort bål.

 

A spate of vehicles rigged with explosives were detonated in eight different neighborhoods of Baghdad — predominantly Sunni, Shiite and confessionally mixed — in apparently coordinated strikes.

The blasts struck public markets, cafes, and restaurants, killing 32 people overall, while violence earlier on Saturday killed two others, according to security and medical officials

A series of blasts hit Baghdad on Tuesday, killing 31 people.

Also on Saturday, north of the capital in Tuz Khurmatu, a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle near a police checkpoint, killing nine people and wounding 48.

Two car bombs in the southern city of Nasiriyah killed four, while a car bomb in the shrine city of Karbala left five others dead.

Elsewhere, three people were killed and five others wounded in separate attacks in Babil and Nineveh provinces.

More than 800 people were killed in attacks during Ramadan, which began in the second week of July and ended this week.

Militants struck targets ranging from cafes where Iraqis gathered after breaking their daily fast, to mosques where extended evening prayers were held during the month.

The violence came just weeks after brazen attacks on prisons in Abu Ghraib and Taji in which hundreds were freed.

Analysts, as well as global police organisation Interpol, have warned that the jailbreaks could lead to a rise in attacks as many of those who broke out were linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
