Baghdad Bombers Target Familiar Market
Posted on Dec 28, 2007
The same Tayaran Square market in Baghdad that has witnessed so much bloodshed over the last few years has once again been bombed, injuring dozens and killing at least 14. The attack, which occurred after Friday prayers when the market was crowded, took place just across the Tigris from the Green Zone.
The attack took place in Tayaran Square, the scene of other deadly bomb attacks in the past two and a half years.
It lies in a predominantly Shia quarter of the city, which makes it the target of Sunni extremists.
