Bombs targeting playground, cafe, school kill 22 in Iraq
by Reuters August 13, 2013
BAGHDAD, Iraq -- A series of bomb attacks killed at least 22 people across Iraq on Monday, part of the country's worst wave of violence in around five years.
At least 16 people died and 41 others were injured when a suicide bomber targeted a crowded cafe in Balad, 50 miles north of Baghdad.
Two roadside bombs - one planted near a playground and another near a school - also killed six people and wounded dozens, some of them children, in the town of Muqdadiya, 50 miles northeast of the capital.
Those blasts underlined a shift in tactics by suspected Islamist militants, who are increasingly targeting not only military checkpoints and marketplaces, but also cafes and recreational areas used by families and children.

Will the militants shift tactics again, and begin to burn the cities? Should fires break out across the cities of Iraq, Jeremiah's fourth judgment against Babylon, the "land of the Chaldeans", will have been fulfilled.
