BAGHDAD: Attacks including a car bomb near a cafe and another at a police station killed 22 people in Iraq yesterday, as the country struggles to curb rampant violence. Unrest has reached a level this year not seen since 2008, when Iraq was just emerging from a period of brutal sectarian killings, and the surge in violence has raised fears the country is falling back into all-out conflict.

In the deadliest attack, a car bomb exploded near a cafe in Buhruz, a Sunni-majority town in the religiously and ethnically mixed Diyala province northeast of Baghdad, killing 11 people and wounded 22, police and a doctor said.AFP
