September Bloodiest Month in Iraq in Two Years

But the war is over, right?

SEPTEMBER was the deadliest month in Iraq in more than two years, with 365 people killed in violence that included waves of country-wide attacks, official figures show.

Insurgents are regarded as weaker than when violence reached its peak in 2006 and 2007, but they remain capable of carrying out mass-casualty attacks across Iraq.
