Attacks kill 16 as May toll tops 900

People in Baghdad's Sadr City district on May 29, 2014 inspect destruction in the street following an explosion the previous dayAttacks across Iraq killed 16 people on Sunday, while new figures showed violence last month claimed more than 900 lives as the country grapples with its worst bloodshed in years. Data compiled separately by the United Nations and the Iraqi defence, interior and health ministries showed that unrest was near its worst since 2008, when it was slowly emerging from a brutal Sunni-Shiite sectarian war. The latest bloodletting comes as political leaders jostle to build alliances during what is expected to be a protracted period of government formation following April elections. The worst of Sunday’s violence targeted security forces north of Baghdad, in the restive provinces of Salaheddin, Diyala and Nineveh.
