Iraq: 46 dead, 32 wounded

Antiwar.com Antiwar.com    

"At least 46 Iraqis were killed and 32 more were wounded in today’s violence. The most shocking report, however, may be the discovery of polio in Iraq after a 14-year-absence. The first case of polio in 14 years has been confirmed in Baghdad. The strain matches one seen in neighboring Syria last year and has paralyzed a six-month-old baby. Although it is unknown how the child caught the highly contagious disease, the return of Iraq refugees and the arrival of Syrian refugees due to the war in Syria is a likely source." (03/24/14)
