No, it wasn’t really right-wing Christians. It was that other religious group — you know, the one that presents a much smaller threat. Iraqi jihad update, “Car bombings kill at least 17 in Baghdad: Onslaught follows deadly blasts that already rocked Iraqi capital,” from CNN, :
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) — Four car bombs exploded Thursday in a north-central neighborhood of Baghdad, killing at least 17 people and wounding as many as 60 others, the Iraqi Defense Ministry said.
A suicide attack near an old mall in the Karada area killed seven civilians and wounded 10 others, the defense ministry said, while the Iraqi police put the death toll at 12 civilians and three police officers, with 50 wounded.
Three police officers and seven civilians died in a second suicide blast targeting an Iraqi police patrol near a gas station, the ministry said. Ten civilians were wounded.
Car bombs also went off near two Shiite Muslim mosques — Albu Jumaa and Abdul Rasool Ali. The bomb near Albu Jumaa mosque was parked on the street and likely was remotely detonated.
A team of explosives experts defused a fifth bomb near the Mubarak mosque.
The violence followed five car bombings Wednesday night in the capital, including three nearly simultaneous blasts that killed 18 people in a predominantly Shiite neighborhood in northwestern Baghdad, police said.
