Bombings kill 35

23 Aug, 2014

A wave of bombings kills at least 35 across Iraq in apparent revenge attacks for the massacre of Sunni worshipers at a mosque in Diyala a day earlier. In Baghdad, a bomber rams a vehicle into an intelligence headquarters, killing at least eight people while near Tikrit, a suicide bomber driving a military Humvee packed with explosives attacks a gathering of soldiers and Shiite militias, killing nine. Another three bombings that appeared to target Kurdish forces kill 18 people in Kirkuk city, 155 miles north of Baghdad. A bomb is also reported in the Kurdish Autonomous city of Arbil, and local television shows firefighters dousing the burnt remains of a car.
