Car Bombings Kill Scores Across Iraq

As Iraqis flooded the streets to celebrate Id al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan, a string of car bombs struck in mostly Shiite neighborhoods, killing more than 60 people. The bombings were the latest in a surge of attacks in Iraq this summer that have brought monthly death tolls to levels not seen in nearly five years, according to United Nations figures. Egyptian security forces stood guard at checkpoints as more than 100 cars, some carrying dozens of jihadis, took part in a funeral procession for four slain fighters in the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula. Authorities said fifty-six police officers and two civilians were injured in clashes in central Belfast in the latest flare-up in tensions between Northern Ireland's Protestant and Catholic communities.
