27 dead in Iraq bomb blast

At least 27 people were killed and more than 50 people injured in a suicide bombing at a cafe in west Baghdad on Thursday night. It was reported that a suicide bomber walked into a cafe crowded with young people and detonated explosives. Other sources say the bomb was hidden in a plastic bag and put in the cafe. The blast collapsed part of the building and debris hit people who were shopping in the mall below the cafe. Emergency workers struggled to extricate trapped victims. According to Reuters, insurgents have stepped up suicide attacks since the start of the year as part of a campaign to provoke confrontation between the country's Shi'ite and Sunni Muslims. More than 30 people were killed in a series of bombings across Iraq on Monday and more than a dozen election candidates have been killed in the run-up to the vote. Security officials have been expecting more attacks before Saturday's ballot for provincial councils.FOR MORE NEXT MEDIA ANIMATION, GO TO: FOR MORE NEXT MEDIA ANIMATION IN ENGLISH, GO TO: FOR MORE TOMONEWS US, GO TO: FOR MORE TOMONEWS JP, GO TO: FOR MORE APPLE DAILY ENGLISH, GO TO: CHECK OUT THE ODDBODS!
