A Shi'ite Mosque was attacked today in Baghdad killing at least 14 and wounding at least 40.


BAGHDAD, Iraq — A car bomb exploded outside a Shiite mosque in Baghdad Friday where worshippers were celebrating a major Muslim holiday, killing at least 14 people and wounding 40, police and hospital officials said, the country's latest violence in the lead-up to this month's elections.

The car blew up outside the al-Taf mosque in the capital's southwest, where Shiites were celebrating one of Islam's most important holidays, Eid al-Adha, or Feast of Sacrifice. The feast coincides with the yearly pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Not good,I guess their soon-to-be minority status is really sinking in & they're resorting to further self-destructive acts of desperation,armed with futile hopes of usurping power from the chaos.
