New Government, Same Old Violence

Iraqis had hoped to be rewarded with stability and a decline in bloodshed on their streets after risking the threat of suicide bombings to vote in the historic election on Jan. 30.

But their bickering leaders took three months to form a government, and the guerrillas show no signs of weakening.

Iraqi officials estimate that attacks have killed about 100 people and wounded more than 150 since Thursday, when the first democratically elected government in 50 years was formed.
