Sunnis and Shias in Iraq – Light in the dark

Karbala: history’s long shadow

On one morning eight bombs went off in an hour in Shia districts of Baghdad. On another there were 11 almost simultaneously – again in Shia neighbourhoods.
There was an attack too on a Sunni mosque in Baqubah and another close to a funeral procession.
Speaking to Iraqis at the bombsites and in hospitals, what surprised me was the very apparent lack of hatred towards the other sect.
