Twin suicide bombings rip through a busy market in central Baghdad, at least 28 killed. It was the first such attack in the capital in nearly two years and comes amid political tensions over planned early elections. @samya_kullab
My anger and sorrow is beyond description. This reminds me of the dark days we witnessed in Baghdad for years. So many explosions and deaths in this one place. Iraqi authorities have FAILED again and again, failed to provide the most basic thing to these poor people -- safety.
