From Al Jazeera:

“There were blasts and there was hell for all of us,” said Nazir John, who was at the church with at least 400 other worshippers. “When I got my senses back, I found nothing but smoke, dust, blood and screaming people. I saw severed body parts and blood all around.”

“More than 40 members of the Sons of Iraq militia were killed today when a suicide bomber blew himself up as the US-backed former insurgents waited to receive their salaries.

The attack, the worst in Baghdad in two months, took place at 8am local time at a base in Radwaniya in the south-west of the capital, leaving 45 dead and dozens injured, among them Iraqi soldiers.

The death toll was sharply higher than in previous strikes against the Sons of Iraq, also known as the Awakening Council, but the attack fits a lethal pattern of targeted killings that have been occurring almost daily in Iraq for the past three months.”
