Iraq car bombs kill 63
A wave of car bombs in several Iraqi cities on Wednesday have killed at least 63 people and left dozens injured. The coordinated attacks targeted religious processions during an annual Shiite pilgrimage and are among the deadliest since U.S. troops withdrew from the country. "The bloodshed was a stark reminder of the political tensions threatening to provoke a new round of sectarian violence that once pushed Iraq to the brink of civil war."
