    Iraq: suicide bomber targets Baghdad park Empty Iraq: suicide bomber targets Baghdad park

    A suicide bomber has attacked a crowded park in northern Baghdad on the bloodiest attack in a day of violence that killed at least 36 people across the country.

    Attacks have been on the rise in Iraq since a deadly security crackdown in April on a Sunni protest camp. More than 3,000 people have been killed in violence during the past few months, raising fears Iraq could see a new round of widespread sectarian bloodshed similar to that which brought the country to the edge of civil war in 2006 and 2007.

    The suicide bomber struck a park in the Qahira neighborhood of Baghdad late on Friday night, an area popular with locals, police said. The bomber detonated his explosives in a crowd of people, killing at least 26 people and wounding 55.

    Violence has stepped up in strikes on so-called soft targets in Iraq - like civilians at coffee shops or those shopping along busy commercial streets.

    There was no claim of responsibility for Friday the suicide bombing. Sunni extremists such as al-Qaeda's Iraq arm that seek to undermine the Shia-led government are frequently blamed for attacks targeting civilians.

    Later in the night, gunmen in Baghdad's northern Azamiyah neighborhood killed four men walking down a street, an army officer and a medical official said. The motive behind the shooting wasn't immediately clear.

    Elsewhere in the country, police said gunmen broke into a house of a Shiite merchant at dawn Friday in the northern town of Dujail, killing him, his wife and elderly mother. Authorities said the motive behind that attack wasn't immediately unclear.


    Dujail, about 50 miles north of Baghdad, is a Shiite Muslim town surrounded by Sunni areas.

    Meanwhile, two police officers said bombs exploded near Sunni mosques in two neighborhoods in Baghdad as worshippers were leaving after Friday's sermon, killing three people and wounding 18.

    Police officers and medical officials confirmed the casualty figures from the attacks.

    Iraq: suicide bomber targets Baghdad park Empty 25 killed in Baghdad suicide bomber attack

    PanARMENIAN.Net - A suicide bomber killed 25 people and wounded more than 50 in Baghdad on Friday, August 23 when he detonated his explosives inside a busy cafe near a park popular with families, police and medical sources said,accoridng to Reuters.

    It was one of the worst attacks in Iraq since suicide bombers hit the same district two months ago, targeting a Shi'ite mosque and killing 29 worshippers during noon prayers.

    Friday's bombing took place in al-Qahira, a northern district of the capital that is home to mainly Shi'ite Muslims. Children were among the casualties at the site, which is in an area with cafes and restaurants. The wounded had been taken to four different hospitals, the sources said.

    "There was a crowd of people, and the suicide bomber detonated himself right inside it. Most of the people were killed or injured by ball bearings from the device," police officer Ahmed Jassim said.

    His patrol heard the blast and arrived at the site to find people lying dead or injured on the ground in pools of blood. Police hesitated to help the wounded because they feared a second bomb, he said.

    In a separate attack in central Baghdad, gunmen on motorcycles shot dead four people who were in a car, police and health sources said.

    Iraqis have suffered extreme violence for years, but since the start of 2013 the intensity of attacks on civilians has dramatically increased. More than 1,000 Iraqis were killed in attacks in July, the worst monthly toll since 2008.

    Iraq: suicide bomber targets Baghdad park Empty Suicide bomber targets busy Baghdad cafe, killing 25

    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A suicide bomber killed 25 people and wounded more than 50 in Baghdad on Friday when he detonated his explosives inside a busy cafe near a park popular with families, police and medical sources said.

    It was one of the worst attacks in Iraq since suicide bombers hit the same district two months ago, targeting a Shi'ite mosque and killing 29 worshippers during noon prayers.

    Friday's bombing took place in al-Qahira, a northern district of the capital that is home to mainly Shi'ite Muslims. Children were among the casualties at the site, which is in an area with cafes and restaurants. The wounded had been taken to four different hospitals, the sources said.

    His patrol heard the blast and arrived at the site to find people lying dead or injured on the ground in pools of blood. Police hesitated to help the wounded because they feared a second bomb, he said.

    In a separate attack in central Baghdad, gunmen on motorcycles shot dead four people who were in a car, police and health sources said.

    Iraqis have suffered extreme violence for years, but since the start of 2013 the intensity of attacks on civilians has dramatically increased. More than 1,000 Iraqis were killed in attacks in July, the worst monthly toll since 2008.

    Since the start of 2013, bomb attacks by mainly Sunni Muslim insurgents have increasingly targeted cafes and other places where families gather, as well as the usual targets of military facilities and checkpoints.

    Eighteen months since U.S. troops withdrew, deep-rooted sectarian tensions have been aggravated by the civil war in neighbouring Syria and growing political divisions between Shi'ite, Sunni and ethnic Kurdish factions.
