Shias in Iraq Celebrate Eid in Traditional Way by Blowing up Sunni Mosque


A bomb exploded near a mosque in Kirkuk on Tuesday, killing eight Sunni worshippers after the first prayer of the Eid al-Adha. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

Eyewitness Ibrahim Mohammed said, "I was on my way home nearby when I heard the explosion. I ran back to see what had happened and there were many killed and wounded people. There is drilling work on one of the mosque pillars and the bomb was placed there".
