(Reuters) On March 27, 2007, a truck bomb exploded in a market (2007 Tal Afar bombings and massacre) in a Shiite area. It was first reported to have killed 83 people and wounded 183, but the Iraqi Interior Ministry later raised the death toll to 152 and said that 347 were wounded, which would make it the deadliest single strike since the war started. The explosion, for which a terrorist group linked to Al Qaeda claimed responsibility, led to reprisal shootings by Shiite policemen

and others against Sunnis, in which between 47 and 70 men were killed. Several Shiite policemen were arrested for taking part in the shootings. Iraq Raises Death Toll in Tal Afar Bomb, Guardian Unlimited, April 1, 2007 Deadliest bomb in Iraq war kills 152, Reuters
