Monday: 24 Iraqis Killed, 66 Wounded

Updated at 11:35 p.m. EDT, Sept. 13, 2010 Fighting between suspected al-Qaeda elements and Iraqi security personnel continued in a small town just northeast of Baghdad. Including those casualties, at least 24 Iraqis were killed and 66 more were wounded in the latest violence. One U.S. soldier was also wounded. As happened yesterday, almost all attacks were in Diyala province. While Diyala remains one of the most unstable provinces thanks to continued al-Qaeda presence, it is unlikely that other volatile areas such as Mosul have gone completely without incidents since the end of Ramadan.
