US Military Blames Al-Qaida in Iraq for Suicide Attack
Baghdad (AP) The U.S. military is blaming Al-Qaida-in-Iraq for last night's double suicide bombing that killed at least 36 people.
It happened during a wedding procession in a twn northeast of Baghdad.
A woman suicide bomber blew herself up as people were dancing and clapping to music. Police say she hid the bomb by pretending to be pregnant. A male bomber detonated his explosives minutes later as police and ambulances arrived on the scene.
Besides the three-dozen dead, at least 65 people were wounded, including the bride and groom.
The attack has stoked fears that Al-Qaida-In-Iraq militants are regrouping, despite recent security gains. The Sunni terror group announced April 19th that it was launching a one month offensive against U.S. troops and Sunnis who've allied with the Americans.
