32 die in Iraq suicide bombing

Jun 18 2013, 7:12am CDT | by

Baghdad, June 18 (IANS) At least 32 people were killed and over 50 injured in twin suicide bomb attacks at a mosque in the Iraqi capital, an interior ministry official said.

Baghdad, June 18 — At least 32 people were killed and over 50 injured in twin suicide bomb attacks at a mosque in the Iraqi capital, an interior ministry official said.

The attacks occurred around midday at the al-Husseiniyah mosque in al-Qahira district, when two suicide bombers blew themselves up during prayers, Xinhua reported.

The official said the two attackers first shot dead the guards of the mosque with silenced weapons before entering the building and blowing up their explosive vests.

Ambulances, civilian and police vehicles evacuated the injured to various hospitals across the city.

BBC said Tuesday's attack comes a day after bombings killed at least 10 people in the cities of Taji and Fallujah near Baghdad.

Last month was the bloodiest in Iraq since June 2008, with 1,045 civilians and security officials killed.

Israeli Novelist Aharon Appelfeld: It Is Not Morally Easy to Be Cruel

Jul 21 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Edinburgh International Film Festival
Since the beginning of the war, I have spoken twice to Aharon Appelfeld, the celebrated Israeli novelist and Holocaust survivor whose book, "Blooms of Darkness," has sold over a million copies. He is sort of secluded in his home in a little village close to Jerusalem. When there is an alarm, he goes into his cellar with his wife -- like everybody else does these days in Israel. When I asked his opinion about the events, he answered twic ...

Iraq Veteran Darin Walker Could Lose Therapy Ducks In Dispute With Town

Jul 21 2014 3:06am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Darin Welker, a veteran of the Iraq War, says he relies on 14 pet ducks for comfort and physical therapy, but by keeping the birds, he's running afoul of local laws. As a result, the village of West Lafayette, Ohio, is trying to make the 36-year-old ditch his ducks. Welker told the Coshocton Tribune that he served nearly a year in Iraq in 2005 and came home with a bad back. While the Department of Veterans Affairs paid for his back surgery in 2012, the ag ...

The heart of a champion

Referee Arthur Mercante counts Zolani Petelo out
I’ve only cried twice at a public sporting event. And both times, I watched a hero of mine – Muhammad Ali – lose a fight. The first time was at the first Ali-Frazier fight, held on March 8, 1971, at Madison Square Garden. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such mania in an audience as there was before that fight. Ali and Frazier genuinely hated each other. Before the fight, Frazier sat in his corner, glaring at Ali, pounding his fists together ...

The Fix: Amid unrest in Iraq, Americans blame U.S. withdrawal more than its invasion

Kashmir Shiite Offer To Fight Against ISIS In Iraq
When it comes to the current violence in Iraq, Americans blame Iraq itself more than the United States' decision to go to war there, according to a new poll Friday from the Pew Research Center. But when it comes to America's culpability, there's something of a split. Slightly more Americans blame the withdrawal of American forces from Iraq than blame the war itself. Read full ...

Ethical Fashion Show Berlin
MILAN (AP) — An Italian anti-death penalty group says the number of executions worldwide increased last year despite a global trend toward capital punishment abolition. The organization Hands off Cain, based in Rome, said Friday that at least 4,106 people were executed in 2013, up from 3,967 in 2012, due to increases in Iran and Iraq. China remains the world's top executioner, with more than 3,000 executions carried out last year, about equal to 2012. Still, the report noted ...
