The surge of violence, including three car bombs, unsettled an Iraqi capital already shaken by fears the country teeters on the brink of sectarian civil war. Iraqis have suffered through days of reprisal killings and attacks on Sunni mosques since bombers blew apart the gold dome of a Shiite Muslim shrine north of Baghdad on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, wailing relatives collected the bodies of their loved ones killed in last week's sectarian violence. So far, officials at the Baghdad central morgue said 249 bodies were brought to the facility since Wednesday.

The Interior Ministry had only confirmed 216 deaths countrywide since Wednesday, but it relies on death certificates from around the country and the process can be slow. The Washington Post reported Tuesday that more than 1,300 Iraqis had been killed since the shrine attack.
