Attacks Kill 68 Across Iraq

A series of coordinated bomb attacks killed 68 in eastern Baghdad within half an hour. The attacks were mostly in Shi’ite neighborhoods. A number of Sunnis accuse the Shi’ites of running death squads, and apparently responded by causing death. The Baghdad killings brought the day’s death toll to 68, although officials say that many bodies have not been recovered, and it is possible the number could be higher.

The bombers rented apartments and stores to plant bombs in, then detonated them by remote control. One of the targeted buildings was a medical center.
