Suicide Bomber Strike at Baghdad Mosque; 13 Killed in Iraq

The United States admitted to additional civilian deaths during nine airstrikes that took place in Iraq and Syria late last year and early this year.

The United Nations says that at least 49 people have been killed and 79 were wounded by booby traps left in Ramadi since the Iraqi government captured the city. Their analysts believe the figures could be higher.

At least 28 were killed and 40 were wounded:

In Baghdad, a suicide bomber killed nine people and wounded 30 after Friday prayers at a Shi’ite mosque in the Nahiyet al-Rashid neighborhood; a second suicide bomber was shot dead.

Two people were killed and nine were wounded by a blast in Abu Ghraib.
