BAGHDAD---Nearly a dozen explo-
sions tore through predominantly Shi-
ite Muslim areas in and around the
Iraqi capital yesterday, killing at least
39 people at crowded market places,
commercial districts and car repair
shops, officials said.
The attacks are part of a wave of vio-
lence that has washed across Iraq since
a deadly security crackdown on a Sunni
protest camp in April. Since then, the
bloodshed has reached heights unseen
since the country teetered on the brink
of civil war in 2006 and 2007.
There was no immediate claim of
responsibility for yesterday s attacks,
but insurgent groups frequently target
civilians in cafes and public areas of
Shiite neighborhoods in an attempt to
undermine confidence in the Shiite-led
government and stir up Iraq s already
simmering sectarian tensions.
The deadliest attack took place in the
mostly Shiite neighborhood of Baiyaa,
where a car bomb exploded inside an
auto shop, killing seven people and
wounding 14 others, police said.
Another car bomb in a commercial
street in downtown Baghdad killed four
more people, while in the eastern
Ghadeer district another car bomb near
a government tax office killed six people
and wounded 22, authorities said.
In the Husseiniyah neighborhood, a
car bombing near a restaurant killed
three people and wounded 13. Another
car bomb near a small market in Bagh-
dad s Shiite slum of Sadr City killed
two, while a blast in a crowded mar-
ketplace in the primarily Shiite neigh-
borhood of Amil killed five more and
an explosion on a shopping street in
the Shiiite district of al-Ameen killed
another two people.
Another bomber struck the Sunni
neighborhood of Radhwaniya, hitting a
row of shops and killing two people and
wounding eight, police said. In the Taji
area just north of the capital, a car bomb
near an auto repair shop killed three
more people, said police.
Police said four people were killed
and 11 others were wounded when a
car bomb went off near a line of shops
in the Shiite village of Sabaa al-Bour,
about 30 kilometres north of Baghdad.
Also, an off-duty army officer was
killed when a sticky bomb attached to
his car exploded as he was driving near
his house in Madain town, just south
of Baghdad, police said.
Saad Maan Ibrahim, an Interior Min-
istry spokesman said today s attacks
bear the hallmark of al-Qaida s Iraqi
"Al-Qaida terrorists have been attack-
ing soft targets because they are not
able to confront our security forces,"
Ibrahim said. "They want to send a
message that they are still strong."
Medical officials confirmed the casu-
alty figures for all attacks. All officials
spoke on condition of anonymity
because they are not authorised to speak
to the media.
At least 127 people have died in attacks
in Iraq so far this month, according to
an Associated Press count. (AP)

CINCINNATI---From Twitter and
Facebook to Amazon and Google,
the biggest names of the Internet
are blasting a federal judge's deci-
sion in a defamation lawsuit by a
former Cincinnati Bengals cheer-
leader convicted of having sex
with her former high school stu-
The Internet giants recently filed
briefs in the 6th US Circuit Court
of Appeals in Cincinnati.
The briefs are part of a lawsuit
involving ex-Bengals cheerleader
Sarah Jones against an Arizona-
based Web site thedirty.com.
A jury found in July that posts
on the site about Jones were sub-
stantially false and awarded her
$338,000. The companies say that
if upheld, the northern Kentucky
judge s ruling in favour of the for-
mer cheerleader has the potential
to "significantly chill online speech"
and undermine a 1996 federal law
that provides broad immunity to
Web sites. (AP)
