#AceNewsReport – Sept.10: Islamic State twin suicide bombings at Baghdad mall kill 12
Twelve people were #killed late on Friday in two suicide bombings claimed by Islamic State at a shopping mall in eastern Baghdad, police and hospital sources said.
More than 40 people were wounded in the attack at Nakheel Mall across from the #oil ministry, the sources said. One #bomb went off at the entrance to the mall, the other in the parking lot.
Unconfirmed amateur video published on Facebook showed what appeared to be four separate fires, including two cars engulfed in flames, under a highway overpass near the mall amid the wailing sirens of first responders.
Amaq news agency, which supports Islamic State, said in an online statement that two suicide #bombers, one wearing a vest and the other in a car, had targeted “a gathering of Shi’ites” on Palestine Street.

#AceWorldNews – RIYADH – April 14 – (ALJ) – A Saudi Arabian court has jailed 13 men, handing down sentences from one to 10 years, for aiding and financing conflicts abroad, conspiring inside Saudi Arabia and harbouring wanted suspects, state news agency SPA reports.
Other charges for which the 13 were convicted on Sunday included money laundering, bribery and possession of illegal weapons. They were all given travel bans to come into force after their sentences finished. Another seven men were acquitted, SPA reported.
Saudi courts have sentenced hundreds of convicted fighters to prison terms in recent months as they work to overcome a long backlog of cases related to an anti-government campaign last decade that killed hundreds.
The security forces detained thousands of people after the bombings and shootings started in 2003. They were accused of security offences, including joining extremist groups and fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
#AceWorldNews – IRAQ – March 27 – A spree of bombing attacks in commercial neighbourhoods of Iraq has killed at least 26 people, officials announced. A car bomb exploded in the Sunni-dominated northern neighbourhood of Azamiyah, killing 12 people and wounding 28.
Minutes later, a bomb exploded near a market in the same neighbourhood, killing seven and injuring another 27.
Another blast in the same area killed 3 and wounded 15 others. In south-western Baghdad, an explosion killed four people and wounded 14. Medics confirmed the casualties for all attacks, AP reports.
No one has claimed responsibility but authorities suspect the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant(ISIL), and the an Al-Qaeida-affiliated group to be behind the bombings.
