Almost 100 Iraqis Killed in Deadliest Day of the Year

Ad Feedback

Monday was the deadliest day of the year in Iraq. Almost 100 Iraqis were killed in a series of attacks.

The violence started early in the morning with drive-by shootings and bombings at security check points in Baghdad.

After that, two car bombs exploded, and while people gathered to help those victims, a suicide bomber attacked the crowd outside a textile factory.

One witness said, "Terrified people were running in different directions. I saw dead people, some burned and crying, wounded people on the ground that was covered with pools of blood. Dozens of wounded people asking for help were laying on the ground."

The government is accusing Al Qaeda for Monday's attacks and the violence fuels growing fear over the country's political uncertainty.

It's been two months since elections there and still no new government in sight.

Meanwhile, the U.S. will pull out half of its troops over the next four months.
