At least 39 people were killed in a string of brazen attacks across Iraq, aimed at the country's security forces. Sunday's violence struck in at least 10 cities, including Dujail, where gunmen stormed an Iraqi Army outpost and killed at least 10 soldiers. Shortly after the attack, a car bomb exploded near a group of police recruits waiting in line to apply for jobs outside the northern city of Kirkuk. In the southern city of Nasiriyah, two car bombs exploded near the French consulate. No one has claimed responsibility for the bloody attacks.
