As Iraqis flooded the streets to celebrate Id al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan, a string of car bombs struck in mostly Shiite neighborhoods, killing more than 60 people. The bombings were the latest in a surge of attacks in Iraq this summer that have brought monthly death tolls to levels not seen in nearly five years, according to United Nations figures.
