"Lull" Shattered in Iraq

The story from the Torygraph.

At least 16 people have been killed in violence across Iraq, ending a spell of comparative peace which followed the country's parliamentary elections a fortnight ago.

While sad, it's not unexpected. The same thing happened in previous elections. I think analysts will be trying to answer whether or not the contesting of the results and the subsequent Shiite reaction played a role here.
