n another wave of bombings across Iraq on Sunday, insurgents left at least 26 people dead. The attacks were "the latest instance in which insurgents coordinated attacks in multiple cities in a single day" in attempts to "rekindle widespread sectarian conflict." The deadliest attack on Sunday came in Taji, a former al Qaeda stronghold north of Baghdad, where three explosive-rigged cars went off within minutes of each other. Although overall violence in Iraq has dropped since the height of bloodshed, Iraqi forces have been unable to stop the almost daily attacks that continue to claim lives.
