Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that’s 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent journalism. Since our first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take corporate or government funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes in to Democracy Now! gave just $4, we could cover our operating expenses for the entire year. Really, that’s all it would take. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

Iraq: Scores Killed in Attacks Claimed by ISIS

HeadlineJan 12, 2016

In Iraq, a series of bombings and shootings have killed scores of people, marking the country’s deadliest day in three months. At a mall in a predominantly Shiite area of the capital Baghdad, attackers detonated a car bomb and then stormed inside. At least 32 people were killed and 58 injured. Northeast of the capital in the town of Muqdadiyah, 42 people were killed in a twin suicide bombing at a cafe. The self-proclaimed Islamic State has claimed responsibility for both attacks. Meanwhile, earlier today a suicide bomber attacked a checkpoint north of Baghdad, killing four police and injuring an intelligence officer.
