Forty-seven dead in Iraqi blasts, shootings

Blood stains in Baghdad's Al-Shaab district. At least 47 people died in a series of deadly bombings and shootings across the country on Sunday. Explosions in Baghdad alone killed 15 people and wounded dozens of others. Tensions here are intensifying between Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims... with Sunni insurgents and al-Qaeda affiliated groups stepping up attacks. According to the United Nations, more than 1,000 Iraqis were killed throughout July, the highest monthly death toll since 2008. Many now fear the country is descending back into 2006 to 2007 - the bloodiest years of sectarian violence.
