23 killed, dozens wounded in Iraq suicide bombing

At least 23 people were killed and 49 were wounded when a suicide bomber blew himself up among members of a local Awakening Council in Taji, Iraq, on Monday.

Dozens of members of the council had lined up outside an office to receive monthly paychecks when the attacker detonated an explosive vest in the crowd. Most of those killed or wounded were members of the council, or al-Sahwa. Taji is about 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of Baghdad.

    What can one say?
    Legacy of a criminal war? "fruitful' by products of 'War on Terror"?

    Why don't you just put this info on a loop ? That way you won't have to keep peinting the same stuff every day. This is so getting not to be news. It's defiitely in the realm of "olds".
