Woman caught placing bomb next to primary school in Iraq
A woman was caught by a security guard as she was placing a bomb next to a primary school south of Baghdad. AFP reports that in other incidents in Iraq, bombings claimed the lives of six members of the security forces.
The attempted bombing at the school came only a day after suicide bombers attacked a primary school and a nearby police station killing ten children.
The attempted bombing came a day after suicide bombers attacked a primary school and a nearby police station in northern Iraq, killing 18 people, including 10 children.
In north Baghdad, two roadside bombs killed four Sahwa fighters and wounded an additional five. The Sahwa provided support to the United States from 2006. They are considered traitors by the Sunni militants.
In the southern part of Fallujah, a bombing and an attack by gunmen killed two soldiers and wounded six.
Over 4,500 people have died in Iraq in 2013. More than 170 people have been killed this month according to figures based on security and medical sources.
