Iraq attacks and shelling leave 35 dead

File photo taken on on May 7, 2014 shows residents of the Iraqi city of Fallujah inspecting damage following shelling by government forces in an area held by anti-government fightersViolence across Iraq, including shelling of the conflict-hit city of Fallujah, killed 35 people Tuesday, as politicians haggle over forming a new governing coalition after April elections. Iraq is going through its worst protracted spell of violence since it emerged from a brutal Sunni-Shiite conflict that killed tens of thousands in 2006 and 2007, with near-daily attacks plaguing Baghdad and much of the north and west. The worst of Tuesday’s bloodshed was concentrated in Fallujah, which has been under the control of anti-government fighters since the beginning of the year. Shelling in the city, which lies just a short drive west of Baghdad, killed 18 people and wounded 43 others, according to Ahmed Shami, a doctor at Fallujah hospital.
