` Iraq has one of the worst bouts of violence from insurgents detonating roadside bombs and cars’

#AceWorldNews says that at least 26 people were killed in Iraq on Thursday as insurgents detonated roadside bombs and cars across the capital of Baghdad and elsewhere in the country.

The killings bring the number of fatalities to 48 in the last two days.

All five attacks hit neighbourhoods and districts that have been battered by relentless violence in recent months as Sunni militants provoke Iraq’s Shi’ite majority and discredit the Shi’ite led government.

Violence in Iraq rose to its highest level in years in 2013, with nearly 8,000 civilians killed.
