Car Bomb in Baghdad Shiite Area Kills Four

Car Bomb in Baghdad Shiite Area Kills Four

(AFP) – A car bomb explosion in a majority Shiite area of the Iraqi capital killed four people on Saturday, medical and security officials said.

The explosion, near a clinic in Al-Amin district in southeast Baghdad, also wounded 20 people including four children, the medical source said.

Sunni Muslim insurgents in Iraq, including members of Al-Qaeda, consider the country’s Shiite majority to be apostates and regularly single them out for attack.

Saturday’s violence comes as Iraq experiences one of its deadliest periods in weeks. The United Nations said more than 1,000 people were killed in May alone, making it Iraq’s deadliest month since 2008.
