Iraq car bombing February 2013

Iraq car bombing February 2013

Destroyed cars lie at the scene of an explosion at the bird market in the north Baghdad Shiite neighbourhood of Kadhimiyah on February 8, 2013. A spate of car bombs in Shiite areas of Iraq, including two blasts minutes apart at a popular bird market, killed at least 29 people, the latest in a spike in violence amid a political crisis. The attacks, which left nearly 70 others wounded, primarily targeted marketplaces that are often crowded on Fridays, the weekly holiday in Iraq, and took the death toll from a week of violence to more than 100.
