Scores killed in Iraq bloodshed ahead of Shi'ite holy day

And the 1,400 year old war between Sunni and Shia goes on apace.  Nothing will stop it until one side or the other is essentially annihilated.

And remember, the West is importing both sects in unprecedented numbers.  It is only a matter of time until open warfare between these fanatics breaks out on Western streets.  I do wonder that year after year, Muslims finds fool after fool after fool to blow themselves up in the name of Islam.

TIKRIT: Suicide bombers and gunmen killed scores of people in Iraq on Monday in attacks mostly targeting Shi'ite Muslim pilgrims and official buildings ahead of a major Shi'ite ritual next week.

Al Qaeda-linked Sunni Muslim militants have intensified attacks on the security forces, civilians and anyone seen as supporting the Shi'ite-led government in Baghdad, tipping Iraq back into its deadliest levels of violence in five years.

The first major attack of the day came in Baiji, 180 km (110 miles) north of Baghdad, when four men wearing explosive belts took over a police station after detonating a car bomb outside, police sources said.

Two blew themselves up inside the station, killing five policemen. The other two did the same about an hour later as Iraqi special forces counter-attacked, the sources said.
