Attacks Kill At Least 6 In Baghdad

Officials said two attacks killed at least six people Saturday in the Iraqi capital, where police also discovered nine bodies, some of them riddled with bullets. The bloodshed comes a day after a coordinated bomb attack on a campaign rally for a militant Shiite group killed at least 33 people, fueling fears that Iraq's already simmering sectarian tensions boil over into retaliatory violence just days ahead of critical parliamentary elections. An al-Qaida breakaway group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, claimed responsibility for Friday's bombings on the Baghdad rally, where some 10,000 backers of Asaib Ahl al-Haq were in attendance. The Islamic State said on a militant website that the attacks were to avenge what it called the killing of Sunnis and their forced removal from their homes by Shiite militias.
