After three days of unrest in the north, bomb attacks in Baghdad took center stage. At least 38 Iraqis were killed and 109 more were wounded in those and other attacks across the country. However, because several locations did not provide any figures, the true tally could be much higher.
Meanwhile, tens of thousands of protesters came out after Friday prayers in Anbar province to continue their weekly demonstrations against the Shi’ite-led government. The U.N. envoy to Iraq, Martin Kobler, called for restraint on all sides, but Sunni clerics encouraged a continuation to anti-government attitudes. The Unified Council of Iraqi Tribes, however, held an emergency meeting and denounced the violence.
Security forces were allowed back into Suleiman Bek after tribal leaders convinced insurgents to hand over the town.
In Baghdad​, attacks mostly targeted Sunnis. A bomb outside a Sunni mosque killed nine people and wounded 42 more. One person was killed and six were wounded in a blast in Rashidiya a few minutes later. Bombs outside mosques in Shabb left two dead and six wounded​. Seven people were wounded in a bombing in Doura.
