Bombings in Baghdad Kill 57, Injury Nearly 200

Within days of American forces leaving Iraq, a series of coordinated attacks devastated the Iraqi capital.  The bombings killed at least 57 people and injured almost 200 people.

The blasts were the worst violence since a political crisis erupted between Iraq's Sunni and Shiite factions over the weekend.

All of this is occurring after American military forces have left Iraq and as the country navigates its own political future.
