At least five Iraqis were killed and four more were wounded in very light violence as al-Qaeda in Iraq has vowed to increase attacks. Meanwhile, Turkey and Iran could be gearing up for more extensive operations in northern Iraq.
Updated at 11:15 p.m. EDT, Apr. 30, 2009 At least 73 Iraqis were killed and 116 more were wounded in violent attacks. Sadr City and Baghdad suffered the lion’s share of casualties, but as is the norm after such dramatic bombings, reports flooded in from other parts of Iraq. No Coalition deaths were reported, but a U.S. soldier was wounded in Kirkuk when gunmen attack a patrol handing out grants.
