AP-IRAQ UPDATE


Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 1:13 PM EDT
BAGHDAD


Two attacks in the Iraqi capital have killed at least six people today, a day after more than 30 people were killed in a coordinated bomb attack at a campaign rally for a militant Shiite group.

Police also discovered nine bodies in Baghdad today, some of them riddled with bullets.

Security officials say they fear the killings signal a new wave of Sunni-Shiite bloodletting ahead of elections next week.

Several hours after yesterday's bombings, a senior Sunni politician in the mostly Shiite southern city of Basra was shot dead in what appeared to be a revenge attack.

An al-Qaida breakaway group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, claimed responsibility for attacking the rally at a Baghdad stadium where about 10,000 people had gathered. In a posting on a militant website, it said the bombings were to avenge the killing of Sunnis and their forced removal from their homes by Shiite militias. The authenticity of the claim could not be verified.

More than 9,000 candidates are taking part in Wednesday's election to fill 328 seats in parliament.
