Iraq: Explosions In Shiite Neighborhoods Kill 20

A series of car bombs exploded in Shiite neighborhoods across Baghdad on Feb. 17, killing at least 20 and wounding dozens more, police and hospital sources said, Reuters reported. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has made concessions to the country's Sunni minority in hopes of quelling rising unrest, but ultimately it will be difficult for the Shia to continue to dominate Iraqi politics, particularly when Sunnis in neighboring Syria achieve a degree of empowerment.
