Proof that enemy in Iraq hates Iraqis
A car bomb has exploded in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, killing at least 10 people as they celebrated the victory of their country's football team.It has to be the foreign al Qaeda elements behind these bombings. Everyone else in Iraq is celebrating and coming together over the events. Would a true Iraqi insurgent want to alienate all the people of Iraq? Would al Qaeda want to steal their joy? The answer to the last question is yes.
The bomb exploded in the city's Mansour district as fans marked their win against South Korea in the Asian Cup.
Police said that at least 60 people had been injured in the attack, when the car exploded in the excited crowd.
Thousands had gathered on the streets of Baghdad, dancing and chanting in a rare moment of national unity.
"I was in a car with my friends, people all around were celebrating and then there was a huge explosion and a lot of fire," one eyewitness, who asked not to be named, told the Agence France-Presse news agency.
"I am nearly crying for joy," 30-year-old fan Nuri al-Najjar told Reuters in the southern city of Basra.
"Iraq's victory with this harmonious team represents the way we should all live together."
