Iraq’s Shi’ite South Targeted: 54 Killed, 174 Wounded -- Antiwar.com
A surge in attacks that began last month resumed after several days of relatively light violence. Shi’ites were targeted in today’s hostilities. Because several of the bombings occurred in southern cities unaccustomed to daily or even weekly attacks, the violence was likely coordinated. Overall, at least 54 Iraqis were killed and 174 more were wounded.
