Sunni extremists continue to terrorize Iraqi Shia

"Four people were killed and more than a dozen were wounded Monday in attacks on three groups of Shiite Muslims observing the religious holiday of Ashura. In the worst attack, a suicide bomber struck the end of a procession in Diyala Province, killing 4 people and wounding 15, mostly women. In Baghdad, a roadside bomb exploded near a procession, wounding four, and three others were hurt in a blast near a Shiite mosque. For several years, largely Sunni insurgent groups have attacked Shiites during the holiday, which commemorates the centuries-old death of a revered imam."

You don't have to live in Iraq to know that Sunni extremists continue to terrorize Shia.

If we had to rely on Arab media, we wouldn't get the full story.

"Each year, suspected Sunni insurgents target Shiites who descend on Iraq for the commemoration of Ashura, which marks the slaying of the revered Imam Hussein by the armies of the Sunni caliph Yazid in 680."
