Suicide blasts claim 60 lives

BACK-TO-BACK suicide bombings killed 60 people yesterday outside the most important Shi’ite shrine in Baghdad, a day after the country was rocked by its most deadly violence in more than a year, police officials said.

Yesterday’s attack came a day after two bombings in separate areas of Iraq killed more than 80 people.

The bombings were the latest in a series of high-profile attacks.

Nobody immediately claimed responsibility for the bombings, but these types of attacks are the trademark of Sunni insurgents backed by al-Qaida in Iraq.
