Just Another Day in Iraq

91 people killed in 2 bombings in Baghdad

BAGHDAD (AP) — At least 91 people were killed Sunday in two bombings in the Iraqi capital, including a large-scale attack claimed by the Islamic State group that killed 86 people — among them 15 children — in a central shopping district, officials said.

The bombings demonstrated the extremists’ ability to mount significant attacks despite major battlefield losses, including the city of Fallujah, which was declared “fully liberated” from IS just over a week ago.

Fallujah was “fully liberated” years ago. Then we let it fall back into the hands of the bad guys. Murdoc guesses that the city will see-saw back and forth for years to come.
