Latest Blasts in Iraq

Posted on: October 28, 2009


Results of the bombings

On Sunday Baghdad had one of its worst suicide bombings since 2007. The two suicide bombers got through a few checkpoints before they detonated the bombs within one minute of each other. Over 155 people were killed and over 500 people were injured. The blasts severely damaged the Justice Ministry and provincial council complexes. A few weeks prior to the deadly bombings blast walls had been removed. These walls were security for this exact reason; to resist any bombs that terrorists might try to set off. An election is planned to happen in Iraq in January and these recent attacks have made many people in Iraq question the security of the country. The current leader is known for keeping the country reasonably safe but this will not help his chances in being reelected. US troops are scheduled to be completely out of Iraq by 2011 and it makes you wonder how this country will do without our help.
