Over 17 people were killed by 2 suicide bomber attacks in Iraq. The attacks seem to have been carried out as revenge after the major assault on a Sunni mosque.
A suicide bomber rammed his vehicle on Saturday into an intelligence headquarters, killing over 8 people, according to medical sources and police. The second suicide bomber attacked a Shia limitias and soldiers gathering with a Humvee packed with explosives near Tikrit.
The two attacks seem to be revenge for the fact that Shia militiamen killed 68 worshippers at a Diyala province village mosque.
As there are talks to create a government that would be stable in Iraq, kidnappings, bombings and executions happen almost every day in the country.
After the mosque attack, 2 influential Sunni politicians refused to participate in the talks to form a new Iraq government.
Haider al-Abadi, new Shia prime minister in Iraq, has to draw Sunnis into politics after predecessor Nuri al-Maliki sidelined them.
