Since singer Susan Boyle has been on TV there's supposed to have been a marked drop in suicide bombing. Apparently, because a lot of the terrorists didn't realise what a real virgin looks like. (She's a mother, you know) - Muezzin

Baghdad bombed ahead of funeral

funeral of al-Hakim [Reuters]
At least one person has been killed and 22 others wounded after a string of car bombs exploded in Baghdad as Iraqi forces tightened security ahead of the funeral of a top Shia leader.
The bombs mainly targeted Iraqi troops in the city and a northern suburb, officials said, raising concerns about whether Iraqi forces can provide adequate security when thousands of people converge to mourn the death of Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim.
The deadliest bombing on Thursday struck at about 11am near a US military base close to Taji, north of Baghdad, killing one person and wounding six others, an Iraqi police official said.
Hours earlier, three bombs attached to parked cars exploded in Baghdad's primarily Sunni neighbourhood of Azamiyah, wounding four police officers and two civilians.
