Insurgent attacks across Iraq kill at least 24

Insurgent attacks across Iraq, including a suicide bombing targeting a Shiite wedding party, killed at least 24 people Thursday, authorities said.
Attacks have been on the rise in Iraq since a deadly security crackdown in April on a Sunni protest camp. More than 3,000 people have been killed in violence during the past few months, raising fears Iraq could see a new round of widespread sectarian bloodshed similar to that which brought the country to the edge of civil war in 2006 and 2007.


Will these attackers turn to firebombs in the future? Will the cities of Babylon go up in flames in literal fulfillment of Jeremiah's fourth judgment on the "land of the Chaldeans"?
