44 killed in attacks across Iraq

By HAMZA HENDAWI, Associated Press Writer 57 minutes ago

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Militants targeted police recruits and shoppers rounding up last-minute sweets and delicacies for a feast to mark the end of the Ramadan holy month, the highlight of the Muslim year. At least 44 Iraqis were reported killed across the country.


The U.S. military announced the deaths of a Marine and seven soldiers, raising to 86 the number of American servicemembers killed in October the highest monthly toll this year. The pace of U.S. deaths could make October the deadliest month in two years.

Six soldiers were killed Sunday, three by small arms fire west of the capital and three by roadside bombs within Baghdad, the military said. On Saturday, a Marine was killed during combat in restive Anbar province and another soldier died in fighting in Salahuddin province.

"There will be no holiday in
Iraq," said Abu Marwa, a 46-year-old Sunni Muslim father of three who owns a mobile phone shop in the capital. "Anyone who says otherwise is a liar."
