Violence kills 75 in Iraq, PM seeks world's support - In the deadliest incident, a bomb blew up in a funeral tent where mourners were marking the death two days ago of a Sunni Muslim pro-government militiaman
The funeral was for an anti-al-Qaida Sunni militiaman who died of natural causes two days ago. The Sunni militia, known as the Awakening Council, was formed by U.S. forces during the height of the insurgency. They are seen as traitors by al-Qaida's local branch and other militant groups.
Another car bomb in a commercial area in the central Karrada area killed four civilians and wounded 14, police said. A car bomb in another part of Karrada killed two civilians and wounded 10, authorities said.
North of Baghdad, seven employees of a brick factory were gunned down by insurgents in the town of Muqdadiyah, while in the town of Dujail a car bomb wounded four people.
The crisis marks the first time militants have exercised such open control in major cities since the height of the insurgency that followed the illegal US-led invasion and occupation of 2003.
The photos were allegedly taken in Fallujah, which, in 2004, was one of the most dangerous cities for U.S. troops at the height of the Iraq war. In the last few weeks, Al Qaeda insurgents took over the city, and the Iraqi military has debated whether or not to attack to reclaim it. "It is heartbreaking to watch Fallujah descend into this kind of violence again," Jessica Lewis, a two-tour Iraq war veteran, told the CBC recently.
TMZ is withholding the majority of the photographs, however, because many are simply “too gruesome,” they claim, including one alleged to be in their possession showing a human body being devoured by dogs and another covered in flies.
