The 16 January 2007 Baghdad Mustansiriya University bombing was a series of bombing attacks at students and teachers at the largely Shiite Mustansiriya University in Baghdad, Iraq, on January 16, 2007. Some 70 people were killed and 169 were wounded.[1]

In early December 2006, the insurgent group Ansar al-Sunna distributed statements at mosques in western Baghdad, and on Web sites, calling on students and professors to cancel classes in preparation for a purge of Shiite militias from campuses. A December 3 statement named Mustansiriya University as one of the schools that should be closed.
