In all now, at least 52 people have been killed in violence today. Most from suicide bomb attacks.
Meantime, the head of the U.S. Central Command tells CNN there’s a lot of work to be done in Iraq by everyone before security and stability are returned to that country. He spoke with CNN’s Kyra Phillips in a broad-ranging interview just hours ago.
