The 28 August 2011 Baghdad bombing was an attack at the Umm al-Qura mosque in western Baghdad. A suicide bomber wearing a fake cast on his arm walked into the building and blew himself up inside the main hall, killing 32 people including parliamentarian Khalid al-Fahdawi.[1] The mosque is the largest place of worship for Sunni Muslims in the capital and the main headquarters of the Sunni Endowment. The organization is responsible for maintaining Sunni Muslim religious sites across Baghdad.[2]
