Death toll rises in Iraq tragedy

The death toll in yesterdays tragedy in Iraq has now risen to more
than 1000. Bodies were floating in the Tigres river near the Qadimiya
district of Baghdad and many laid injured in hospitals thoughout the
city. The irony that the death toll exceeded any that a suicide bomber
could inflict, was all the more tragic. There was no bomber, only the
rumour that one was amongst the crowds, causing mass panic.
