Muslims Murder 42 More Iraqi Muslims

From those champions of the faith at the Agence France-Pressee:

Iraqi soldiers secure the site of a bomb attack in Mosul, 390 km (240 miles) north of Baghdad July 9, 2009.

Bomb attacks kill 42 in Iraq

by Mujahid Mohammed Thu Jul 9

MOSUL, Iraq (AFP) – A double suicide attack and two other bombings killed at least 42 people in Iraq on Thursday in the deadliest day since US forces pulled out of towns and cities nationwide just over a week ago.

The suicide bombers targeted the home of a police sergeant and his brother, who also worked for the security forces, in the northern town of Tal Afar, provincial police chief General Khaled Hamdani told AFP.

The first attacker was wearing a police uniform and he blew himself up after his intended victims answered a knock on the door, killing the police sergeant, his wife and young daughter, and seriously wounding his brother, Hamdani said.

The attackers struck minutes apart around 7.30am (0430 GMT), with the second explosion engulfing dozens of civilians who had gathered to help victims of the earlier blast, a security official said.

It was the worst single incident in the conflict-hit country since American forces withdrew from Iraq’s urban centres on June 30 under a landmark accord between Baghdad and Washington.

Dr Fathi Yassin at Tal Afar hospital said 35 people were killed and 61 wounded in the attack, carried out a day after two car bombs exploded in the main northern city of Mosul, killing 12 people and wounding dozens more.

Police and hospital sources said the casualties in Tal Afar included women and children…

In further attacks on Thursday, another six people were killed and 31 hurt when two bombs exploded in a market in the mainly Shiite district of Sadr City in Baghdad, said the capital’s security spokesman Major General Qassim Atta.

A roadside bomb targeting the convoy of the Iraqi Central Bank’s governor, meanwhile, killed one civilian and wounded five people, including two members of the security forces, in the Karrada business district of Baghdad.

The governor was unhurt…

The four weeks leading up to the US pullback witnessed the highest death toll in the country in 11 months, according to official figures.

A total of 437 people, including 372 civilians, were killed in June, figures compiled by government ministries show — the highest toll since July 2008

You see, these pious Muslims are merely protesting the presence of infidel US troops in their land.

They may go on protesting for years.

After all, our watchdog media has never given us any other explanation.
