Bombs targeting Sunnis kill 76 in Iraq

KNIFE-EDGE:Baqubah, where the deadliest of Friday’s blasts occurred, saw some of the fiercest fighting during the US-led occupation, and sectarian tensions still simmer


The attacks on Sunnis came after two days of car bombs targeting Shiite areas in Baghdad and other attacks that left 33 dead on Wednesday and 21 dead on Thursday.

The violence against a Sunni house of worship represented a trend that has been on the rise. About 30 Sunni mosques have been attacked from mid-April to mid-May, killing more than 100 worshipers.
