Middle East In Review

Asal Ahmed, 4, is carried by her father at the scene of a massive suicide truck bomb attack in the Karradah district of Baghdad, Iraq on July 9, 2016. Asal and her mother were badly burned as they shopped for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr. Iraq’s deadliest single bombing in 13 years of war has turned the Baghdad district where it took place into the centerpiece in an increasingly bitter rivalry between the country’s prime minister and Iranian-backed Shiite militias eager to hold sway over the city’s most diverse and prosperous area.
