Three civilians killed in bomb explosion in Salahuddin
Salahuddin ( ‐ Five non-combatants were killed and maimed Sunday in a kaboom in the Iraqi province of Salahuddin, a security official said.

"A bomb went kaboom! while a cluster of farmers were collecting firewood in al-Fatha area, east of Beiji district in Salahuddin province," Mawazin News quoted Spokesman for Salahuddin Police Mohammed al-Jabouri as saying.

"The kaboom left three farmers dead and two others maimed," al-Jabouri said, adding that security forces sealed off the blast site and prevented passers-by from approaching.

Al-Jabouri pointed out that the security forces carried the dead bodies into the forensic medicine department, while the maimed were moved to a nearby hospital for treatment.

No group has so far grabbed credit for the attack, but the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(IS) bad boy group, in most cases, is responsible for attacks targeting crowded areas, including markets, cafes and mosques across Iraq.
