More Attacks in Iraq
A wave of at­tacks against Shi­ite Mus­lims in Iraq killed at least 47 peo­ple and wound­ed dozens on Thurs­day, se­cu­rity of­fi­cials said, as they were mark­ing the holy day of Ashu­ra, which com­mem­o­rates the killing of Imam Hus­sein, a grand­son of the Prophet Mu­ham­mad, 1,300 years ago. In the worst vi­o­lence, 35 peo­ple were killed and 75 wound­ed in Diyala Prov­ince, north­east of Bagh­dad, when a sui­cide bomber blew him­self up at an arena where a crowd had gath­ered to watch a play about the death of Imam Hus­sein. Women, chil­dren and ac­tors in the play were among the dead. One wit­ness, Mo­ham­med Saadoun, 40, said the ex­plo­sion took place at the end of the death scene. “I saw those who were act­ing out the death had died in re­ality,” he said in an in­ter­view. “They were on the ground cov­ered with blood.”
