It was a devastating weekend overseas following a series of deadly attacks in the Middle East and Asia.
Iraqis upset over a truck bombing in downtown Baghdad that killed 149 people and hurt nearly 200 others, many critically, were seen throwing rocks and shoes at their prime minister’s convoy on Sunday.
Many Iraqis blame their political leaders for security lapses in the capital’s civilian areas that have failed to prevent attacks like this from happening.
The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the bombing, which comes during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
Sunday’s attack was the deadliest in the country in a year.
Police and health officials expect the death toll to climb here, as rescuers continue to search for missing people.
Iraq’s prime minister has ordered new security measures following the attack, including X-ray scanners at provincial checkpoints.
Meantime, a Canadian citizen is still being questioned by officials in Bangladesh after being rescued from an attack on a restaurant in the capital Dhaka.
Twenty hostages and two police officers were killed when militants stormed the popular restaurant on Saturday. Six of the militants were also killed during the attack, and one was captured.
Bangladesh’s government has denied the Islamic State group’s claim of responsibility for the attack.
So far no one has claimed responsibility for an incident in Saudi Arabia that saw a suicide bomber detonated a suicide vest as security guards approached him near a hospital parking lot in Jiddah.
The attacker was the only fatality. A pair of security guards suffered minor injuries.
