Deadly prayers in Iraq

Deadly prayers in Iraq after a suicide bomber attacked a Shi'ite mosque in Baghdad. It was the deadliest of a series of attacks that claimed more than 30 lives across Iraq Saturday. The worshipers were in the middle of prayers when the attack was launched. (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) UNIDENTIFIED MAN WHO WORKS AT MOSQUE, SAYING: "These innocent, poor people are the terrorists? And the terrorists are the victims in this country? How long have we been in this situation? No one has been captured or brought to justice and the Sunni protesters demand freedom for prisoners charged with terrorism and call them innocent. These are the innocent people." Sectarian tensions in Iraq and the wider region have been inflamed by the civil war in Syria -- where mainly Sunni Muslim rebels are fighting to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.
