Another atrocity by a no doubt highly religious Muslim:
A suicide bomber blew himself up Saturday at a lunch hosted by a Sunni candidate in Iraq’s upcoming regional elections, killing 20 people, officials said. The blast ripped through a hospitality tent pitched next to the house of Muthana al-Jourani, who is running for the provincial council and held the lunch rally for supporters, councilman Sadiq al-Huseini said.
Expect more of this in the next few weeks:
Violence is expected to surge in the run up to Iraq’s provincial elections on April 20.
