The huge explosion occurred as worshippers were heading to sunset prayers and the street was bustling with families enjoying a stroll in the cool of the evening.
One weeping man struck himself in the head as a sign of grief. Another sifted through debris near the molten remnants of a car. A woman shrouded in black screamed as she walked by the bombing site.
Later, several men carried wooden coffins on their shoulders, leaving the scene where nearly all building fronts had been damaged.
One charred shoe was left in the street, near a pool of dried blood mixed with ashes on the pavement. A blackened bicycle also lay abandoned close to a truck hitched to a fuel tanker that may have fed the blaze.
It appeared the bombing was directed at Shiite worshippers in the latest attack aimed at triggering sectarian war between Sunnis and Shiites.

The truth is you didn't envisage the Moslem Fanatics fighting like they do. They are people who cannot have a God as they treat life with impunity. Its time we let these people eradicate themselves fighting their own Moslem brothers in a war that is incomprehensible. Pull the troops out and let them kill each other in the name of God Or Allah.
