Yes, but there are many other causes -- think famine, poverty, and lack
of proper access to essential, life-saving medicines, as well as general
conflict-related murder (whether it be open warfare, insurgency,
historical and/or territorial conflict, gangs, whatever) -- that kill
many, many more, every day.

While the bombings were utterly deplorable and tragic, as I think we
can all agree, I don't think that ubuntu-users is the best place for it,
given it is already bursting at the seams with mail.
sounder at, our off-topic list, would be a much better

But I don't run the list, I just lurk here.
