Baghdad bombing suggests that security gains are fragile

A car bomb ripped through a historic Shiite Muslim district of Baghdad Saturday, killing at least 24 people and wounding at least 46, Iraqi police said. The bombing in Kadhimiyah, a holy area for Shiite Muslims, underscores fear that the security gains of the past year are fragile, even in the country’s capital.
