Bomb blast kills one in eastern Baghdad

Baghdad police say a car bomb exploded Monday near an outdoor market in al-Obeidi, a Shiite neighborhood on the eastern side of town.  Officials say at least one person was killed and six others were wounded.

Figures from Iraq's Interior, Defense and Health ministries say 144 Iraqi civilians, policemen and soldiers were killed in acts of violence across the country in October.  Civilians made up most of the casualties.

    It seems killing people, even people of the same faith, is part of the religious cult in islam.
    Death and humiliation of women seems to be the only outcome and reward on earth of this belief.
    Islam is a time bomb in its practices. If only the followers of this faith could realize this.
