Iraq suicide cyclist kills 28 in Baghdad

by Ammar Karim

BAGHDAD (AFP) – A suicide bomber on a bicycle blew himself up killing at least 28 people and wounding 58 more outside a police academy in the Iraqi capital on Sunday in the bloodiest attack in weeks, officials said.

The bomber activated his explosive vest as he ploughed into the crowd on busy Palestine Street in central Baghdad, an interior ministry official told AFP.

"The death toll has reached 28 dead and 58 wounded. The majority of the dead were police or recruits," the official said.

An AFP photographer at Baghdad’s Al-Kindi hospital said many of the casualties he saw had serious injuries. The victims were taken to three hospitals in the city…

On Thursday, a truck bomb killed 10 people and wounded more than 50 at a crowded livestock market near Hilla, a mainly Shiite provincial capital south of Baghdad.

The blast in the town of Al-Medhatiaya was the deadliest single attack in the country since a suicide bomber killed 35 pilgrims heading to the shrine city of Karbala south of Baghdad in February.

Some 258 Iraqis were killed in violence last month, a sharp rise from the previous month that saw the lowest casualty figures since the US-led invasion of March 2003, according to government statistics.

The February death toll was up 35 percent on January’s total of 191, which was the lowest figure since 2003. The increase was in part attributable to the bloody February 13 suicide bombing in Iskandiriyah.

In total, more than 50 people died in a spate of attacks during the Shiite commemorations for Arbaeen, which mark 40 days after the Ashura anniversary of the killing of Imam Hussein by Sunni caliph Yazid’s armies in AD 680.

Funny how we don’t hear so much about these attacks in Iraq since January 20th or so.

Even though, as the article notes, they are up some 35%.

But of course once Mr. Obama ‘reaches out’ to these terrorists, all of this will stop.

    There’s a good reason why we’re not hearing of these attacks since TCO took over; he realizes that they’re all part of a vast, right-wing conspiracy to discredit him and has chosen to take the high ground and ignore them.
    Not only will he purposely ignore them but as soon as he’s done healing our souls he’ll heal the souls of those poor demented individuals who have strayed from the light – like Rush Limbaugh.
    Then the Age of Obama will be upon us; peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars.
    I feel better already!

      Well, you have to “tune in, turn on, and drop out” first. And follow that up with ” do your own thing” but only “if it feels good, do it”. And adopt the word “dude” into your language patterns heavily and refer to anyone in authority as, “the man”, man.

      And, if all that doesn’t help, get yourself some ganja and, be like a gold-medal Olympic athlete and party-hearty.

      You’re right, GL, the msm is in on it and even they have no clue as to how to deal with reality when their Judas goat of a president leads us all to the slaughter. Especially since blaming Bush has gotten pretty old hat even to them.

    AD 680 .. gawd .. time for someone to “reach out”. This could become chronic.

      Suicyclist? I believe they have reached out and touched someone. Wonder if you can rent these people to do a special, special mission? A little money and the promise of 72 Virgins ought to do the trick!! Time to clean up a certain Hill.

    Muslims kill more Arabs than any other people, which makes you wonder why their hate remains vested in Israel.

    This might be too dangerous for Obombo to take his family, But, I sure think he should take them to Kenya to see if prehaps it’s a place they might be happier. Obombo’s fathers would finally rest in peace.
