3 Dead Car Bombs Target at Least Four Churches in Baghdad and Kirkuk
BAGHDAD. Jan 29, 2006. Car bombs exploded in a synchronized spree of attacks outside at least four churches in Baghdad and the northern city of Kirkuk Sunday, killing at least three Iraqis and wounding nine, police said. The country`s ceaseless violence killed at least 20 people, including 13 Iraqi policemen and soldiers.
Meanwhile, Iraq`s top Sunni Arab political leader accused Shiite-dominated security forces of pursuing a strategy of sectarian "cleansing" in Baghdad and said he opposed giving key Cabinet posts to Shiites a stance likely to further inflame sectarian tensions.
Three civilians were killed and one wounded in an attack on the Church of the Virgin in Kirkuk at 4:30 p.m., Col. Birhan Taha said. That explosion came 15 minutes after another car bomb exploded outside an Orthodox church, wounding six civilians.
Both bombs were detonated by remote control, Taha told The Associated Press.
In Baghdad, a car bomb detonated at 4:10 p.m. outside St. Joseph`s Roman Catholic church in the eastern Baghdad suburb of Sina`a, wounding two people, Maj. Qusai Ibrahim said.
About 20 minutes later, another vehicle exploded outside an Anglican church in eastern Baghdad`s Nidhal area, causing no casualties, Lt. Ali Mitaab said.
