17 killed, 80 wounded in wave of bomb attacks in Iraqi capital

BAGHDAD, June 24 - At least 17 people were killed and 80 others wounded in a wave of bomb attacks in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Monday, an interior ministry source said.

A car bomb exploded in the Husseiniya district in northeastern Baghdad, killing four civilians and wounding eight others, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

Three people were killed and 11 others injured when another car bomb exploded in the Karrada district in central Baghdad, he said.

A car bomb exploded in the Nahrawan area in eastern Baghdad, killing one and wounding seven others, while another car bomb in Al-amana in southeastern Baghdad killed two and injured seven, the source said.

A car bomb attack near the al-Samarrai mosque in the New Baghdad district of the capital killed one civilian and wounded eight others.

Two back-to-back car bombings in the Jihad neighborhood in southwestern Baghdad led to the deaths of three people and wounded 19 civilians.

Another car bomb exploded at the intersection of the Shurta Al- rabiaa in southwestern Baghdad, killing two people and wounding 10 others.

A parked car exploded in the Maalif area in southwestern Baghdad, killing one and wounding 10 people.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the al-Qaida front in Iraq, in most cases, was responsible for such bombings in the country.

High-profile bomb attacks are still common in Iraq despite the dramatic decrease since its peak in 2006 and 2007, when the country was engulfed in sectarian killings.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
