36 Iraqi Shi'ite pilgrims killed by bombers

And today we have another showing of tolerance from the Religion of peace !

36 Muslim Pilgrims on their way to a Islamic shrine were sploded up into pieces by some of their own countrymen !

Ah , how pieceful , Muslim Killing Muslim .

(Reuters) - A suicide bomber killed at least 30 Iraqi Shi'ite pilgrims on Wednesday en route to a shrine and wounded 75, while a roadside bomb killed another six despite heavy security during a religious rite, security sources said.

The suicide bombing took place just short of a bridge where 1,000 Shi'ite pilgrims died in a stampede during the same festival in 2005 after hearing rumors of a bomb.

The attacker was wearing a belt full of explosives, a police source said. Suicide bombings are often a hallmark of Sunni Islamist al Qaeda, which regards Shi'ite Muslims as apostates.

The roadside bomb in the western district of Harithiya, a mainly Sunni area that the Shi'ite pilgrims walk through to get to the Imam Moussa al-Kadhim shrine, killed six and wounded 30, an Interior Ministry source said.
