“The point behind this explosion was sabotage”

The anniversary of the fall of their hero is near.

'The first bombing occurred around 7 a.m. on a narrow street in the Alawi neighborhood in Baghdad’s center when a parked car exploded outside a row of grocery stores and inexpensive restaurants, one of them called “Father of Peace.” At least 4 people died there; 15 others were wounded. Among those killed was a man selling tea from a small sidewalk cart; he and his clients appeared to bear the brunt of the blast.

“We are all so simple,” said Hussein Jawad, a 40-year-old construction worker, who returned to street afterwards, his head swathed in bandages from his injuries. “We are all workers. We are not a military outpost. This is a public place.”

He expressed anger but seemed at a loss to understand a motive behind the bombing, except to say, “The point behind this explosion was sabotage.” '
