Round-up of Daily Violence in Iraq - Thursday 10 September 2009

Two suicide bombers driving booby trapped trucks drove into the village of Wardek before dawn, Thursday. The first truck detonated killing 20 civilians and injuring 27 others, and the toll is expected to rise because many of the injured are critical, said police. The second truck was stopped as Peshmerga, Kurd militia, came to the site at the sound of the first explosion and shot the driver dead. The explosion also leveled fifteen houses and caused extensive damage to forty others. Two roadside bombs went off simultaneously in an open air market in the city of Mahmoudiyah, 30 km to the south of Baghdad at 9 a.m. Thursday killing four civilians and injuring 29 others.
