Iraqis mourn victims of worst bombing in 2 years

BAGHDAD (AP) – The death toll from Iraq’s worst attack in more than two years climbed to 155 Monday as Iraqis buried the dead from the twin suicide bombings that devastated the heart of Baghdad.
Funerals were held around the city amid heightened security that snarled traffic during the morning rush hour. The bombings targeted two government buildings, calling into question the state’s ability to protect itself as it prepares for January elections and the U.S. military withdrawal.
