Almost 1,000 Iraqis killed in September
Tuesday 01 October 2013
Nearly 1,000 Iraqis were killed in September, one of the highest monthly death tolls in years, the UN has said. The killings reflect the militants’ determination to rekindle large-scale sectarian conflict.
Iraq is going through its worst surge in violence since 2008, with near-daily militant attacks and relentless bombings blamed on hardline Sunni insurgents.
The surge followed a deadly crackdown by the Shia-led government on a Sunni protest camp in northern Iraq in April. More than 5,000 people have been killed since then.
