Multiple suicide bombers , some reportedly disguised as women have killed dozens with co-ordinated suicide bombing attacks in Baghdad.
The terrorists attacked the Buratha mosque , a major shiite holy site , targeting the faithful as they left Friday prayers
An apparent triple suicide bomb attack on a key Shia mosque in Baghdad has left 79 people dead and at least 160 injured, Iraqi police have said.
The blasts happened as worshippers were leaving the Buratha mosque in the north of the city after Friday prayers.
At least two of the suicide bombers were dressed as women, police said.

This attack is only the latest in a long line of sectarian attacks that threaten to plunge Iraq into civil war . It is likely that the bombers hoped
that the mosque iman Sheikh Jalaluddin al-Saghir would be killed , as he is a leading shia politician and member of parliament . but the Sheik escaped
with only minor injuries .
The madness continues , unabated . Everyone will blame some one else as usual , and pointless reprisals will follow .
The so called " rival " factions must learn that there is room for all in the new free Iraq , it is not a last man standing , death match , that
only one can win
let us hope that their leaders realise this , sooner rather than later .
