Iraq Plane ‘Accidentally’ Bombs Baghdad


baghdadAt least seven people are dead after an Iraqi warplane accidentally released a bomb due to a “technical problem.”

The incident happened near the Rasheed air base during the Sukhoi Su-25 aircraft’s return from a bombing run, and the blast injured at least 11 others.

“One of the bombs became stuck because of a technical problem, and during [the aircraft’s] return to base it fell on three houses in Baghdad Jadida,” a spokesman said.

The plane was an aging model purchased from Russia; the U.S. has not yet sold Iraq more modern F-16 warplanes. Read more at Yahoo News.
