The Iraqi government put a ban on animal carts after radical Islamists rigged a horse-drawn cart to kill innocent Iraqis.
The Daily Mail reported:

A BOMB strapped to a horse-drawn cart exploded in central Baghdad today, killing one person, while a car bomb killed three people north of the capital.

A ban on animal-drawn carts in Baghdad was imposed in response to the bomb, which had been booby-trapped and placed on the cart, said Major-General Qassim Moussawi, spokesman for security operations in Baghdad.

“We had information about possible attacks using animal carts … and now this happened this morning in Karrada district,” he said.

“We have banned them until further notice to prevent these kinds of attacks.”
