Wave of Baghdad bombings targets largely Shiite areas

Car bombs rocked a number of predominantly Shiite Muslim neighborhoods of Baghdad on Monday, killing at least 13 people and wounding 53 others, police officials told CNN.

The violence adds to the particularly bloody fighting and political instability that Iraq and its capital, Baghdad, has seen in recent months.

Six car bombs detonated Monday in five neighborhoods across Baghdad within a period of about two hours, police said.

    I am no longer interested in talking to a ultra conservative, radical Muslim like you who could never bring herself/himself to say a word about the suffering of Shiite victims of brutal Muslim terrorists. Muslims like you always accuse democracy but never say a word against the oppression of women by Muslims, killings of Shiites and other innocent people by Muslim terrorists. Go ahead and spew your hatred against democracy and call everyone else special interest.

    Islamic people killing again? When they are allowed to come here, they do Boston Marathon bombing. When they live there, they kill their own kind. Can't stop Muslims from killing others. They always are blood thirsty.
