The bombing of the golden-domed Askari shrine in Samarra in 2006 was a catalyst in igniting two years of sectarian violence that drove Iraq to the brink of civil war.

While overall violence in Iraq has fallen since the peak of sectarian fighting in 2006-07, bombings and killings still occur daily. Most attacks are being done by the Wahabi Arab insurgents , who are the remenants of the US and Saudi funded insurgency and they are still active on their duty, and who have refused to lay down arms after the withdrawal of U.S. forces.
On Wednesday, militants targeting Shi’ite families in Baquba killed five people in bombings that occurred after leaflets were distributed telling Shi’ites to leave the neighborhood or be killed.
Iraq’s coalition government is a delicate mix of Shi’ites, Sunnis and Kurds and was formed under a fragile power-sharing agreement after an inconclusive election in 2010.
