Bomb attack kills Iraqi army recruits
Thirteen Iraqi army recruits have been killed and over 30 others wounded in a bomb attack in Baghdad.

According to Iraqi police sources, the incident took place on Thursday after a bomb went off at Muthanna airfield – which is used by the Iraqi army – west of the capital.

The victims were reportedly registering their names to help government forces fight al-Qaeda-linked militants in the province of Anbar.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Iraqi officials say the main suspects are militants linked to al-Qaeda.

The violence in Anbar broke out on December 30, 2013, when the army removed an anti-government protest camp in the city of Ramadi. Iraqi authorities said the camp was used as “headquarters for the leadership of al-Qaeda.” The bloodshed later spread to the nearby city of Fallujah.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has called on the people of Fallujah to “expel the terrorists” so that “their areas are not subjected to the dangers of armed clashes.”
