Bombings Rock Iraq, Afghanistan
A small, but terribly destructive, wave of bombings hit Iraq on Sunday, leaving 35 dead and 100 wounded. Deadliest among the attacks was a car bomb coupled with a suicide bomb that killed 19 in the Shaab neighborhood of Baghdad. However, smaller attacks killed several others across the city throughout the day as well. While ISIS is, naturally, the key suspect, the group has not yet made any claims of responsibility.
Also on Sunday a car bomb killed 25 and wounded 10 near Khost, Afghanistan. The area is home to a military base that holds some American soldiers, although the U.S. military has officially stated that none of its personnel were injured.
