伊拉克系列炸弹爆炸近60人死 Bombings in Iraq Kill Nearly 60

23 April, 2010

伊拉克官员说,一系列炸弹爆炸导致至少58人丧生,大部分袭击目标是首都巴格达的什叶派。

巴格达什叶派聚居区萨德尔城发生多起爆炸。安全官员说,在反美宗教人士萨德尔办公室附近发生至少一起汽车炸弹爆炸,炸死25人,至少100人受伤。另外一起炸弹爆炸发生在一个市场。官员说,星期五在巴格达还发生了针对三个什叶派清真寺的炸弹袭击。

几天前,伊拉克官员宣布基地组织在伊拉克的两名高级头目被击毙。巴格达发生的大多数暴力事件是基地组织所为。伊拉克3月议会选举没有产生任何明显的胜者后,巴格达的袭击事件开始增加。当局担心,伊拉克政局前景的不确定性引发暴力增加。

警方说,星期五早些时候,在西部的安巴尔省发生一系列路边炸弹爆炸,炸死至少六人,炸伤10人。

Iraqi officials say at least 58 people have been killed in a series of bombings -- most them targeting Shi'ites in the capital Baghdad.

Multiple explosions occurred in Sadr City, a Shi'ite neighborhood in Baghdad. Security officials say at least one car bomb exploded near the office of anti-U.S. cleric Moqtada al-Sadr, killing 25 people and injuring at least 100. Another bomb exploded at a marketplace. Officials say other bombings Friday targeted three Shi'ite mosques in Baghdad. 

The violence comes days after Iraqi officials announced the killings of two top leaders of al-Qaida in Iraq. The group has been blamed for much of the violence in Baghdad.
The number of attacks in the capital began rising after parliamentary elections in March, which yielded no clear winner. Authorities fear the country's uncertain political future is fueling the renewed violence.

Earlier Friday, in western Anbar province, Iraqi police said a series of roadside bombs killed at least six people and wounded 10 others.
