Neel R. 5th period

There have been suicide bombings in Iraq targeted at the Shia. These attacks have been in al-Tarmiya and in Mosul. These attacks are said to be targeted by the Sunni and killed 22 people and injured 15. There have been more than 6,000 deaths this year and 350 deaths in this month.

This relates to our standards because it shows the fighting between the Shi'a and the Sunni religious groups. This relates to what happened when the two groups fought over who would be the leader of the muslims when Muhammad died. The two groups have been fighting over this decision for a long time.
