Death in Gaza, Death in Baghdad...News from the Occupied Territories

I really don't understand and cannot begin to fathom what kind of human being is capable of such a heinous crime. Man or woman, Muslim, Jew, or Christian, Shi'a or Sunni, the result is the same. Thousands of innocent Iraqi families are being ripped apart by death and destruction. Damn you Bush.

Three bombers dressed as women have killed at least 70 people at a Shia mosque in Baghdad, police say.

The bombers were dressed as women in black robes when they attacked on Friday, two inside the mosque and one just outside, a police official said.

Some police sources said the bombers were women; others said they were a woman and two men dressed as women.

The bombing also wounded 158 people.

The mosque complex belongs to the Supreme Council of Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI), the most powerful group inside Iraq's ruling Shia alliance.

While in Iraq attacks are being perpetrated by criminal gangs of various ideologies, in the Palestinian territories the perpetrator is always the same: Israeli Occupying Forces (IOF).

Six Palestinians, including a child, have been killed in an Israeli air strike outside a militant training camp near Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

The dead included a senior commander in the Popular Resistance Committees group and his five-year-old daughter.

Witnesses said three rockets were fired. At least 12 people were injured.
