Three years after U.S. troops pulled out, declaring the mission of restoring peace more or less complete, Iraq is no longer a post-conflict nation dealing with residual violence.
It is now, once again, a full-blown sectarian war zone, with armed factions that hold territory and kill civilians at will.
Attacks mainly targeting Shia-majority areas of Iraq killed at least 57 people on Monday, and security forces killed 10 militants, officials said, as the interior ministry warned of civil war.
