Four successive blasts rocked the Iraqi city of Kerbala on Sunday, killing 17 people and wounding several persons, outside a local government building, while Iraqi officials accused al Qaeda affiliates in this regard.
The first bomb ripped through a crowd of civilians and guards who were gathered in front of an office, issuing Identity cards and passports, and three other blasts exploded shortly after—as emergency services arrived to help the wounded, police said.
The blasts, three bombs in cars and explosives attached to a motorbike tore the fronts off several homes and shops, leaving bodies among the rubble and twisted metal scattered across the street outside. I was inside my house when I heard a big explosion.
