Insurgents killed at least 44 people in a wave of attacks against Iraqi security forces on Sept. 9, gunning down soldiers at an army post and bombing police recruits. The violence, which struck at least 11 cities and wounded nearly 240 people, highlighted militant attempts to sow havoc in the country and undermine the government.
