A suicide bomber drove a vehicle into a Shi’a mosque in northern Iraq during Friday prayers. The detonation killed five worshipers and injured over 70, according to Reuters.

This attack comes after Shia’s were targeted in a Wednesday attack that killed an estimated 12 worshipers. The sectarian targeting threatens the power-sharing government consisting of Shi’a, Sunni, and Kurdish politicians.

The bombing contributes to a rising August death toll after a July that saw more deaths than any month in the year before it.
