A series of bombs in Iraq, including one targeting a provincial governor, killed at least 30 people Thursday and wounded dozens as a tireless wave of violence further rattled the country.

Iraq is experiencing its most relentless round of bloodshed since the 2011 U.S. military withdrawal, deepening fears that the country is heading back toward the widespread sectarian fighting that pushed it to the brink of civil war in the years after the invasion.
