Series Of Blasts Target Mass Protest Gathering In Baghdad, Multiple Dead & Wounded

A series of explosions ripped through central Baghdad on Friday night, and appeared to target protests which have raged since early October, killing at least three people. Some unconfirmed reports have cited four dead and a dozen wounded in a developing situation where the casualty toll is expected to climb.

The final in a string of blasts was identified according to early reports and video as a car bomb in Tahrir Square, which did the worst damage, killing and wounding multiple protesters.

"A large number of people injured by the booby-trapped car bomb were taken by the drivers of the Tek-Tik wheels to hospitals near Tahrir," a source told Arabic media. Another blast was reported in nearby Tayaran Square as well, which may have also resulted in casualties.

Though anti-corruption and anti-government demonstrations have witnessed violent clashes with police, resulting at this point in over 300 dead and an estimated 15,000 wounded, the bombing escalates things to a new level of violence.

Some among the string of blasts as well as the aftermath caught on video:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is obvious that neither the Iraqi government or military are in control; so cui bono?!? Who benefits?!?

Not Muktada Al Sadr; his majority in Iraq's Parliament is now seen as part of the problem.

Perhaps US elements who have rejected the Iraqi's desire for the US to be completely out of the country?!? It is hard to say with certainty.
