Islamic State Hides Bombs in Children’s Dolls

Iraqi police confiscated and destroyed 18 dolls rigged with explosives which would have targeted Shiites at the Arbaeen festival.

The Islamic State has booby trapped children’s dolls with explosives, aiming to carry out an attack against the Shiite pilgrimage festival of Arbaeen.

Iraqi police seized 18 such dolls which were to have been scattered on the road to Karbala from Baghdad during the festival.

They were instead confiscated and destroyed.

Some 20 million Shiites travel to Karbala annually for the festival.

On Friday ten people were killed in a suicide bombing in Baghdad on Friday in a Shiite mosque. Although no group immediately claimed responsibility, suspicion has falled on the Islamic State, which has carried out many other attacks on Shiite Iraqis in the past.
