25 KILLED IN IRAQ SUICIDE BLAST

>

A suicide bomber has killed at least 25 people and injured dozens in Diyala Province north of Baghdad, on Thursday 10/29/2010 night, Iraqi officials said.

The attacker is believed to have detonated an explosives vest in a cafe in the town of Balad Ruz, in Diyala province (see also – Diyala 08.11.10 ).

The AP news agency quotes the mayor as saying most of the victims were men playing dominos and drinking tea in the cafe when the explosion happened. The area is said to be home to many Shiaas of Kurdish origin.

It is the first major bomb attack in Iraq in more than a month. Such attacks have become much less frequent than they were a few years ago though people are still dying violently somewhere in Iraq every day.

Security officials say it is now much harder for the insurgents to get hold of the materials needed for such devices, our correspondent adds.
