"39 Shiite worshippers killed in attack."

Today, a female suicide bomber “blew herself up” amid a group of Shiite worshippers near a mosque in Karbala, killing at least 39 people and wounding 54.” The attack was just half a mile away “from the Imam Hussein shrine, one of the holiest sites for Shiites.”
