More horror

From CBC:
At least 54 people died when a suicide bomber detonated explosives strapped to his body at a gas station south of Baghdad, police say...

The blast, which took place near a Shia mosque, injured at least 82 people.

Later on in the story, the U.S.' senior commander in Iraq claims that the insurgency has changed in character, from a domestic uprising to one fed mostly by foreign militants. But either way, based on the recent death tolls there's little reason to think that its strength is going to wane anytime soon.
