11 killed at Iraq campaign rally for Shiite group
A series of bombs exploded Friday at a campaign rally for a Shiite group in Iraq's capital ahead of the country's parliamentary election, killing at least 11 people and wounding 23, authorities said.

 

The explosions struck as some 10,000 people had gathered at the Industrial Stadium in eastern Baghdad for the Asaib Ahl al-Haq rally, in which the Shiite group planned to announce its candidates for Iraq's parliamentary election Wednesday. (AP)
