Al Qaeda front group claims Iraq attacks
BAGHDAD - Al Qaeda’s front group in Iraq has claimed 28 attacks between mid-June and the end of July, including a coordinated assault on an anti-terror department in central Baghdad two weeks ago.
The Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) said it killed 70 people in the July 31 attack.
“A group ... launched an operation targeting one of the corners of the Safavid project in the country, the anti-terrorism directorate in Karrada,” said a statement posted on forums on Sunday.
