Suicide bomber targets football fans


A WOMAN suicide bomber targeted football fans near a cafe north of Baghdad as they were celebrating Iraq's win in a World Cup qualifying game yesterday.
At least 34 people were wounded when the woman detonated her explosives belt as she walked towards the crowd emerging from the cafe in Qara Tappah after Iraq's 2-1 win over China in an away game, police said.

More casualties were prevented because a policeman spotted the detonator and screamed at the crowd to disperse.
