Bombings Kill 28 in Baghdad, Mosul
BAGHDAD, Iraq Sep 20, 2006 (AP)— Separate bombings near an army base and a police building killed at least 28 people and wounded at least 56, Iraqi police said Wednesday.
A bomb in a parked car detonated Tuesday night near an Iraqi army base in Sharqat, about 45 miles from the northern city of Mosul, police said. A suicide bomber detonated his explosives as a crowd gathered at the scene. At least 21 people were killed and 50 wounded, police said.
A suicide truck bomb slammed into a police headquarters building in Baghdad Wednesday morning, destroying the building and killing seven policemen, police said.
Another six people, including a civilian, were wounded in the attack in the southern Baghdad neighborhood of Dora, said police Capt. Jamil Hussein.
Meanwhile, lawmakers angered by relentless violence in Iraq demanded Tuesday that the defense and interior ministers explain what they are doing to put an end to the death squads that have killed hundreds of Iraqis.
Violence around Iraq killed at least 16 Iraqis on Tuesday, including 10 people killed in a rocket attack on a Shiite neighborhood of Baghdad. An American soldier died in a suicide car bombing in northern Iraq.
Nearly 200 bodies of Iraqis who had been tortured and shot have turned up around Baghdad in the past week, including three found Tuesday in an eastern section of the capital. Most are found bound and blindfolded, apparent victims of sectarian violence.
Both Sunni and Shiite lawmakers called Tuesday for the defense and interior ministers to explain how they plan to stop the killings.
"I demand the defense and interior ministers be summoned to let us know their plans to stop these criminal acts: kidnappings, killings and assassinations against our people," said Hassan Bejar, a lawmaker with the Iraqi Accordance Front, the largest Sunni bloc in government.
Shiite lawmaker Haider al-Safar said: "We are just sitting here and seeing these dead bodies being thrown every day in the streets."
"We need to see real achievements from the defense and interior ministries to stop the daily kidnapping and bloodletting," he said.
