A police officer stood guard at the site of car bomb attack in the Shuala district in Baghdad on Tuesday.
Sunni Islamist insurgents linked to al Qaeda are regaining ground in Iraq, invigorated by the war next door in Syria and have stepped up attacks on Shi’ite targets in an attempt to provoke a wider sectarian confrontation.
