On Sunday, a series of bombings in Baghdad killed at least 27 people and wounded more than 80. The attacks raised new concern that the security situation in Baghdad is deteriorating, even as Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki today expressed his commitment to reaching a security agreement with the United States that will allow U.S. forces to remain in Iraq beyond next year.
