That’s a big one.
Wait for the confirmation
Que the 72 virgins. Tell them to not laugh when they notice the bomber blew off something basic.

BOMBINGS IN NORTHERN IRAQ

In for the September report.
According to Reuters website this report is over 9 hours old and there’s been no other confirmation of such attack.
This the same thing?
Suicide bombers kill 20 in Iraq sect attack
Tuesday, August 14, 2007
BAGHDAD - Suicide bombers driving fuel tankers killed 20 people and wounded 70 in what appeared to be an attack on an ancient minority sect in northern Iraq on Tuesday, police said.
Police said it appeared three bombers driving separate tankers had attacked Yazidi sect members in different neighbourhoods in Mosul, 390 km (240 miles) north of Baghdad, detonating their vehicles in quick succession.
Yazidis are members of a pre-Islamic Kurdish sect and live in northern Iraq and Syria.
Yazidis in Iraq say they have faced discrimination because the chief angel they venerate as a manifestation of God is often identified as the fallen angel Satan in biblical terminology.
Yazidis say they suffered massacres during the secular rule of Saddam Hussein.
In April, gunmen shot dead 23 Yazidi factory workers in Mosul in apparent retaliation for the stoning of a teenaged Yazidi girl several weeks earlier
Police said the girl had been stoned to death by local Yazidis after falling in love with a Muslim man and converting to Islam. Gruesome video of her killing was aired by television networks around the world.
If it is the same attack, the huge jump in casualties within hours sounds more than fishy.
The report I posted was more recent than the one in the original post
Than it’s even more awkward. Let’s wait a few days to get a clearer picture.
I’m still getting the ‘175 killed’ bulletin on the link, reported at 14 Aug 2007 20:20:44 GMT.
FOX news just reported it- said there were several simultaneous explosions in/near Mosul..
More Mohamacide bombers.
I googled “bombing northern iraq” in google news.
Nothing for today yet posted. A few related articles from last 2 weeks.
This was already reported. However the reports conflict between aprox. 20 dead and at least 175 dead.
Something doesn’t add up. Both reports apparently refer to the same event (Yazidis blown up by fuel tankers).
