Al Qaeda claims responsibility for deadly attacks in Iraq

Al Qaeda has claimed responsibility for a spate of bombings and other attacks in Iraq on Thursday that killed at least 55 people and wounded more than 225, the AP reported.

The relative calm in Iraq has deteriorated rapidly since the U.S. military's withdrawal in late December. As per President Obama's direcetive, no residual force of U.S. troops remained in the country, thereby leaving a huge and perilous security vacuum.
