The U.S. SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors militant forums, says the Islamic State of Iraq issued a statement on militant websites saying Sunday’s attacks came in revenge for alleged criminal acts by the Shiite-led government against Sunnis in the Iraqi capital.
The car bombs that exploded within minutes in outdoor markets also wounded more than 100 people. The attacks came amid rising sectarian discord in the country and appeared aimed at shaking the Iraqis’ confidence in the Shiite-led government.
Iraq’s al Qaeda branch has staged scores of large-scale attacks against Shiite Muslims, which it considers heretics and accuses of being too closely aligned with neighboring Shiite powerhouse Iran.
