Another Round of Bombings Kill 60

Two suicide bombings at the holiest Shiite site in Baghdad today killed 60 people. Most of the people killed were Iranians, making pilgrimage to the shrine, which honors one of the twelve imams of Shiite Islam. Thursday was the deadliest day in Iraq in over a year: five bombings in the last 24 hours have left a total of 140 dead and 240 wounded. "The security situation is still good, but there are some sleeper cells that are targeting the softer areas," an aide to the prime minister said of Baghdad. "They just want to send a message to the government and the world that they are still here."
