Suicide bomber strikes Shia pilgrims in Baghdad

Aljazeera reported today that a suicide bomber has struck a crowd of Shia pilgrims en route to a shrine, killing at least 30 people and wounding 75 others in Iraq's capital, Baghdad.

Tens of thousands of Shia worshippers streamed into the Iraqi capital earlier in the day amid heavy security for the pilgrimage, a day after six people were killed in violence. 200,000 Iraqi police and soldiers had been assigned to protect the pilgrims as they headed to the shrine.

The hebrew prophet Jeremiah prophesied that the cities of Babylon would be set on fire, and that the nations would become exhausted and abandon the nation because of the fire.

What will light the fires? Bombings, political upheaval, sectarian clashes? We wait and watch.
