Baghdad ripped by fatal bombs on 10th anniversary of U.S. invasion
Question of the Day
Dozens have died, and hundreds more were wounded, as Iraqi insurgents marked the 10th anniversary of America’s invasion with bombs targeted at Shiite areas.
The attacks targeted restaurants, bus stops and even daily laborers heading to work, CBS reported. Police said the attacks spanned about an hour and began at a small restaurant.
Shortly after that car bomb blast, another bomb was set off at a gathering place for day laborers. In Sadr City, meanwhile, a bomb attached to the underside of a bus killed and wounded several. And a separate car bomb in the same neighborhood went off about the same time, CBS reports. At least five more bombs detonated before the hour was up, CBS says.
Nobody took responsibility — but CBS says the attacks have the handprint of al Qaeda all over them.
On March 19, 2003, the United States invaded Iraq.
