Today’s bombing news

As a quick follow-up to my post on the Boston bombings We are all Boston but not Baghdad, Benghazi or Mogadishu -- in which I encourage us to extend our empathy and concern beyond our borders -- here's some of today's bombing news from around the world.

As a quick follow-up to my post on the Boston bombings We are all Boston but not Baghdad, Benghazi or Mogadishu — in which I encourage us to extend our empathy and concern beyond our borders — here’s some of today’s bombing news (which doesn’t include the bombs that regularly kill soldiers overseas):

Fox Bomb in Baghdad restaurant kills 4, wounds 11

Voice of America  Tanzanian church blast kills one, wounds 57

TMZ Aerosmith cancels Indonesia concert appearance after bomb scare

Sabahi Eleven killed in Mogadishu suicide bombing

AP Bomb at political rally in Pakistan kills 14

The point is simply that these kind of ‘terrorist’ acts happen elsewhere on a daily basis and are just as tragic, but seldom get much attention.
