Iraqi police: bombs kill 11 in Baghdad

BAGHDAD – Iraqi police say bombs at two Shiite mosques in Baghdad have killed 11 people and injured 30.

Police officials say the bombs went off Thursday morning as worshippers left two separate mosques after early morning prayers celebrating the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.

A police official said a suicide car bomber killed seven and injured 21 in an attack that targeted an Iraqi army patrol protecting worshippers in the mainly Shiite neighborhood of Zafaraniyah. Two of the dead were soldiers.

A separate police official said the other attack targeted worshippers leaving the Rasoul mosque in eastern Baghdad, killing four.

The police officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the press.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
