Pilgrims Attacked Again in Iraq; 73 Killed, 121 Wounded

Margaret Griffis

December 19, 2013

As the Arbaeen observance draws nearer, Shiĺite pilgrims remain easy targets for insurgents. The pilgrims often travel to Karbala on foot, making them exceptionally vulnerable. In addition, Iraqis will often provide refreshments to traveling pilgrims, giving insurgents effortless access to large groups of people. At least 73 people were killed today, and another 121 were wounded. Most of the casualties occurred between Baghdad and Karbala.

In Baghdad, 20 people were killed and 40 more were wounded in a suicide attack at refreshment stand set-up for pilgrims traveling through the Doura district; one victim was a former Reuters reporter. Gunmen killed a civilian. A bomb in Radwaniya killed two people and wounded seven more. Security forces killed four gunmen and then two more in separate operations.
