Four bombings rock Baghdad in quick succession

February 28, 2006 17:01

A suicide bomber detonated an explosives belt at a crowded gas station Tuesday - one of three bombings that rocked Baghdad in quick succession over a half hour and killed at least 41 people. Scores were wounded in the fresh surge of violence that unsettled an Iraqi capital already shaken by fears the country was teetering on the brink of sectarian civil war. Iraqis suffered through days of reprisal killings and attacks on Sunni mosques after bombers blew apart the gold dome of a Shiite Muslim shrine north of Baghdad on Wednesday.
