Deadly bombings raise Iraq’s security concerns

On Sunday, a series of bombings in Baghdad killed at least 27 people and wounded more than 80.

Ghassan Shabaneh speaks with Martin Savidge about the timing of the attacks during the holy month of Ramadan, the role of the U.S. military surge and Iran’s goals in the region.
