Grief and anger in Baghdad: Iraq reels from bloodiest attack since 2003 (part 2)

The target was a Shia neighbourhood of Baghdad but the victims of the Iraqi capital's worst suicide attack since 2003 were also Sunni and Christian; they were men, women and children. We'll never know for sure if the attack claimed by ISIS could have been prevented, but the anger directed toward Prime Minister al-Abadi highlights the rage of citizens who feel the political will to protect them is gone. What accountability for Iraq's leaders?
