Death toll in suicide attack in Iraq raises to 26


More death and destruction resulting from members of the “peaceful” Islamic faith as yet another Muslim individual, made crazy by religion, blows himself up and takes another couple of dozen people with him.

The effect of this poison known as religion on the human brain is truly remarkable. TGO

BAGHDAD – An Iraqi health official says the death toll from a suicide bombing north of Baghdad has risen to 26.

Hussein Jaafar, the director of the hospital in Balad Ruz, said Saturday that five more people have died from injuries sustained in the blast.

The suicide bomber blew himself up inside a popular cafe Friday night, breaking what has been a period of relative calm in Iraq.

The neighborhood where the explosion occurred is home to many Shiites of Kurdish ethnicity.

The attack underscores the delicate nature of Iraq’s security gains and comes as the country is approaching its eighth month without a new government following inconclusive elections.
