Muslims in Iraq detonated a bomb that killed at least twenty two people and wounded forty four people According to the most recent report:
Attacks in Baghdad killed at least 22 people and wounded dozens on Monday, just days after the government lifted a nighttime curfew that had been in place in the Iraqi capital for over a decade.
In the first attack, a suicide bomber set off an explosive vest in a busy Baghdad intersection crowded with rush-hour commuters early, killing at least 18 people. The bombing in Adan Square, located in a predominantly Shiite part of the capital, appeared to be the latest in a near-daily string of attacks by Sunni Islamic extremists targeting the country’s Shiite majority.
A police officer who provided the death toll said the attack also wounded 42 people.
Hours later, a bomb ripped through a commercial area in the capital’s northeastern suburb of Husseiniyah, killing four civilians and wounding nine, another police officer said.
Two medical officials confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
