DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. October 15, 2016, 3:49 PM (IDT)

The heaviest toll was caused Saturday by a suicide bomber who detonated an explosive vest in the middle of a Shiite Ashura gathering at a market in Baghdad’s northern al-Shaab district, killing at least 41 people and wounding 33. Islamic State claimed the attack. Also struck were a police checkpoint and the family of Numan al-Mujamaei, leader of the Sunni paramilitary Ishaq Mobilization militia, which is fighting ISIS.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
