Exactly. And sometimes the bigger explosions are reported by the likes of BBC.

Holy crap, just heard this on BBC/CNN. Aerial photos clearly show burn marks on places on the pavement, like a bomb in a litter bin or something. There are clearly large pools of blood/bloodstains within metres of the blast marks.

Sickening.

NSFW/NSFL

Here you can see explosion #1:

Explosion #2 happened a little further down the street, on the right hand side (out of frame)

If this WAS a delberate attack, how the heck did they get the bombs through security? The Americans are obsessive about security in big events like this.

BBC saying 'reports of another device in another hotel'

What are the bets that turns out to be 'baseless speculation originating from gossiping locals'?

Horrific, thoughts with the victims.

There are worse NSFL pictures emerging now but I won't link them here because they don't belong here.

I wonder this too and I guess its a combination of :

Its a rare event, rather than a monthly one in Iraq
We have more affinity with the US, so it feels closer to home
Due to the above it is reported more, and in a more dramatic way, to us

And other reasons I guess, but no, objectively it is no more or less a terrible event to happen to innocent bystanders than any other bombing.

I would imagine its an attempt to stop it derailing into a debate (raging inaccurate argument) around Islamic terrorists, the middle east, american foreign policy etc etc - not that that happens often on these forums.
