Al-Qaida Surges Back in Iraq, Reviving Old Fears

BAGHDAD October 13, 2013 (AP)

By ADAM SCHRECK Associated Press


First came the fireball, then the screams of the victims. The suicide bombing just outside a Baghdad graveyard knocked Nasser Waleed Ali over and peppered his back with shrapnel.

Al-Qaida has come roaring back in Iraq since U.S. troops left in late 2011 and now looks stronger than it has in years. The terror group has shown it is capable of carrying out mass-casualty attacks several times a month, driving the death toll in Iraq to the highest level in half a decade. It sees each attack as a way to cultivate an atmosphere of chaos that weakens the Shiite-led government's authority.

Iraqi officials acknowledge the group is growing stronger.

No Al Qaida was heard in Saddam’s regime. Who brought them to Iraq?
