Funerals, New Target Places for Criminals

Series of bomb explosions killed about 100 and injured more than 120 in Iraq.

An explosion in n Sadr city left 57 killed and 120 injured.

Two hours later another explosion killed nine and wounded 14.

Gunmen killed seven police officers and wounded 21 people in another attack in the same day.

Most of recent attacks and explosions took place when people are gathered to the honor of their lost ones in funeral ceremonies.

4000 people are killed between April and August 2013.

The attacks and bombs are clearly designed and planned to target civilians since all take place at crowded areas. SRW believes such crimes against humanity must be investigated in international committees and we urge the Iraqi government to stand up for the rights of its citizen and investigate the killings.
