Iraq Carnage: 69 Killed, 176 Wounded

Margaret Griffis

April 19, 2012

Iraq suffered significant bomb attacks in multiple cities today, leaving at least 69 dead and 176 more wounded. The multiple large-scale attacks were apparently coordinated, took place mostly during a 75-minute span, and focused on security personnel. In stark contrast, recent violence has largely resulted in only one or two deaths at a time.

Hamid Mutlaq, a Sunni member of parliament, blamed Baghdad for the slaughter, noting that Prime Minister Nouri al-Malikiís office has been stoking political tensions in recent weeks and causing several groups to call for an end to Malikiís budding "dictatorship." Among the most aggrieved parties is Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi who fled to Iraqi Kurdistan. He fears that Malikiís machinations are tearing the country apart.

The carnage cut short a relatively quiet period for Iraq. According to the Interior Ministry, March saw the lowest death toll since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. Their figures came up to 112 killed. The deadliest day last month left 63 dead and 257 wounded.

The gravest single attack today took place near Kirkuk in Malhaa/Dibis, where a multiple bomb attack killed nine people and wounded 24 more.

In Baghdad, a bomb targeted Health Minister Majeed Hamad Amin but instead killed two bodyguards and wounded six others on Palestine Street. Three people were killed and 20 more were injured in a blast in Kadhimiya. A bomb in Amil killed two construction workers and wounded 18 more. Two people were killed as they allegedly tried to plant a bomb in Ghazaliya. Five civilians were wounded in a Zaafaraniya blast. A judge was assassinated in Saidiya. Two civilians were killed in a blast in Harthiya.

A car bomber exploded his cargo at a Sahwa checkpoint in Samarra, killing five militia members and wounding eight more. Nearby, another bomb killed two people and wounded a Sahwa member. Three policemen were killed in a third but separate blast.

Eight civilians were killed in two separate bombing in Ramadi. As many as 10 others were also wounded.

A suicide bomber in Taji killed five people and wounded nine more. Two more bombs killed a civilian and wounded five others.

Two bombs in Kirkuk itself left four dead and 19 wounded. The police chief from Muqdadiya was among the wounded.

In Mosul, a suicide bomber was killed by security personnel before he could pull off his attack. A blast near a college left two dead and three wounded. A separate blast left three dead and two wounded at a restaurant.

One person was killed and 13 more were wounded in a blast, the first attack in the series, in Baquba.
