Rampant violence in Iraq:
More than 40 people have been killed in terrorist attacks against mourners marking the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (PBUH) in Iraq.
A bomb attack killed some 32 people and injured at least 80 others in the city of Baquba in Diyala Province, north of the Iraqi capital city of Baghdad, on Thursday, security and medical sources said.
On Wednesday, more than 20 people, including Shias and members of Iraqi security forces, were killed and several others were wounded in a series of bomb blasts across Iraq.
No group has claimed responsibility for the bomb attacks, but systematic bombings are a favorite tactic of al-Qaeda-linked groups, who seek to destabilize the country.
Data released by Iraqi ministries of health, interior and defense on November 1 showed that violence in the country killed nearly 1,000 people and injured 1,600 others in October alone.
