Dateline Iraq: Dozens Killed In Suicide Bombings

Bombings continue:

Suicide bombers struck across Iraq on Saturday in a sharp upsurge in violence that killed more than 60 people, many of them policemen.

In the worst attack, a man driving a truck packed with explosives blew it up outside a police station in Baghdad's volatile southern district of Dora, killing 20. The blast sent a large column of smoke into the air and rattled windows kilometres away in the center of the city [...]

A suicide car bomber struck a police station in the Qaim area of Anbar, near the Syrian border, on Saturday while two others struck police checkpoints at about the same time [...]

A suicide truck bomber also struck near a Shi'ite mosque in the town of Haswa about 60 km (40 miles) south of Baghdad, killing nine and wounding 43, a hospital source said. The provincial health directorate put the death toll at 16.

In the northwestern town of Tal Afar a bomber wearing an explosives vest blew himself up in a market, killing 10 people, mayor Najim al Jibouri said. Two of the dead were policemen.
Note this paragraph in the report:

President Bush is also sending more troops to the western province of Anbar, where Sunni Arab insurgents are exacting a bloody toll on Iraqi and U.S. forces. The U.S. military said a soldier was killed in combat there on Friday.
It's whack-a-mole all over again.
