BAGHDAD - Violence rocked Iraq on Wednesday as at least 54 people died in car bombings, suicide attacks and assassinations around the country.



The bloodshed hit mostly Shi'ite sections of Baghdad and the troubled northern city of Mosul, where an al Qaida breakaway faction, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), holds sway.



The bombings and killings were a reminder in the month since national elections were held that the pace of bloodshed has shown no signs of diminishing
