Dateline Iraq: 30 Dead in Baghdad Book District

The"resounding success" as Prime Minister Maliki calls the escalation continues:

A suicide car bomber devastated Baghdad's historic booksellers' district on Monday, killing 30 people and setting shops and cars ablaze in defiance of a U.S.-backed crackdown on violence in the Iraqi capital.
Meanwhile, in Southern Baghdad:

In southern Baghdad, gunmen attacked Shi'ite pilgrims heading for Kerbala for the Arbain festival on Saturday killing five and wounding 17 in two separate incidents, police said.
