At­tacks kill at least 9 peo­ple

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

At­tacks in mostly Sunni Arab ar­eas of Bagh­dad as well as north­ern and western Iraq killed at least nine peo­ple on Tues­day, the lat­est in a month­s­long na­tion­wide surge in blood­let­ting. The rise in vi­o­lence, which has killed more than 6,200 peo­ple this year, has prompted au­thor­i­ties to ap­peal for in­ter­na­tional help in com­bat­ing mil­i­tancy ahead of gen­eral elec­tions sched­uled for April.
