44 Dead in New Wave of Iraq Attacks

BAGHDAD – At least 44 people died and 155 were wounded Monday in a new wave of attacks mainly targeting Shi’ite neighborhoods in Baghdad, an Iraqi police source told Efe.

The deadliest attack came in the capital district of Al Kazemiya, where 10 people died and 24 were wounded when two vehicles loaded with explosives blew up.

Meanwhile, in Sadr City, in eastern Baghdad, at least seven people died and 15 were wounded in an attack on a produce market.

Another 14 people died and 81 were hurt in attacks on seven other Shi’ite-majority areas of the capital.

In addition, two predominantly Sunni districts in Baghdad were the targets of terrorist attacks that killed at least four people and wounded 22.

Elsewhere, several bomb attacks occurred in other provinces in northern and eastern Iraq killing at least four people and wounding 13.

More than 800 people died last month in Iraq as a result of political or sectarian violence, bringing the civilian death toll for the year so far to around 5,000, the U.N. mission in Baghdad said.

Leaders of most of Iraq’s political parties met on Sept. 20 to sign a pact of “honor and social peace” to confront a resurgence of sectarian violence.

The targets of recent attacks have been mainly the security forces and Shi’ites.
