Multiple bombings across Iraq kill more than 60, mostly Shias

In a new paroxysm of violence in Iraq on Thursday, well over 60 peoplewere killed by a series of car bombings that struck across Baghdad,along with additional suicide bombings in northern Iraq. The bombstargeted Shia neighborhoods, and it’s assumed that the perpetratorswere al-Qaeda linked terrorists from the Islamic State of Iraq and theLevant/Sham/Syria (ISIS). President George Bush’s military “surge” in2007 was successful in ejecting al-Qaeda from Iraq, but since theAmerican withdrawal in December 2011, all that work has been comingundone. With Syria’s civil war continuing, the fault line betweenSunni and Shia Muslims is increasingly inflamed throughout theMideast, and is drawing both Sunni and Shia jihadists into the region.AFP and Reuters
