Suicide car bomb kills 4 schoolchildren in Iraq

And we keep hearing that Islam is a beautiful religion.
BAGHDAD (AP) — A suicide car bomb went off near a school in Iraq’s western Anbar province on Monday, killing four children, officials said.

The car exploded in the center of the town of Hit, 140 kilometers (85 miles) west of Baghdad, shortly after a police patrol passed by, said Mohammed Fathi, a provincial spokesman. He said six children were also wounded in the blast.

The bombing came a day after the start of the new school year in Iraq.
