The US military said Wednesday that it remains "extremely concerned" about high-profile bombings despite a drop in the overall death toll in Baghdad after more than 300 people were killed in such attacks in recent weeks. The Iraqi government, meanwhile, announced it was extending a security operation outside the capital, although it gave few details. Military spokesman Maj. Gen.
