AIR correspondent Dhirendra Ojha reports that Government offices were targeted in Ramadi while Shia procession was the target at Baquba in Diyala. Police officials say, security agencies are working within a pre-emptive plan to foil any attempt by terrorists ahead of Ashura, which is observed by a large number people from Shiite faith. Apart from intelligence elements 30,000 security men have been deployed on the ways leading to Karbala. The attacks highlight the serious power vacuum that exists in the country as political parties are struggling to form a new government more than eight months after parliamentary elections.
