More than 50 killed in Iraqi violence

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Violence rocked Iraq on Wednesday (May 28) as at least 54 people died in car bombings, suicide attacks and assassinations around the country. The bloodshed hit mostly Shi'ite sections of Baghdad and the troubled northern city of Mosul, where an al Qaeda breakaway faction, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), holds sway. The bombings and killings were a reminder in the month since national elections were held that the pace of bloodshed has shown no signs of diminishing. In one attack in Baghdad Shi"ite district of Al-Ameen, a car bomb exploded in a busy main street near street vendors, killing ten civilians and wounding 29 others, police said. The blast damaged a number of shops and set some parked cars on fire.
