This is why you take your shoes off in airports
The Associated Press is reporting a “shoe bomber” killed 10 people inside a Shiite mosque in Iraq.
The imam of the Buratha mosque in northern Baghdad, a leading politician and deputy with the governing Shiite coalition who often spoke out against the late terrorist leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, blamed al-Qaida in Iraq for the attack.
The security operation in Baghdad has imposed a driving ban during Friday prayers to prevent suicide car bomb attacks, as well as a curfew. About 75,000 troops are in the streets of the capital.
“They were targeting me for the second time and the prayers also,” said the imam, Jalal Eddin al-Sagheer, in an interview with The Associated Press.
