Deadly car bomb in Baghdad

The wake of a deadly car bomb in a Shi'ite neighbourhood of northern Baghdad. The blast killed at least 11 people and wounded more than 44. The attack came on a second consecutive day of violence across the country that has killed at least 26 people, mostly in northern Iraqi towns and villages. A resident at the scene said such attacks aimed to divide Muslims. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) UNIDENTIFIED RESIDENT OF NEIGHBOURHOOD, SAYING: "It (bomb) targeted civilian people who work to earn a living. This act cannot be accepted either by God nor by his prophet. Also Islam cannot accept such act. We are all Muslims, we believe in one prophet and our Qibla (the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca in which Muslims face in prayer) is one. There is no difference between Sunnis and Shi'ites. This is a sabotage work against the country and humanity as a whole." Violence in Iraq has eased since the carnage of 2006-2007, but sectarian strife persists.
