FILE - In this Sept. 14, 2013 file photo, Qasim Ahmed Tahan carries the dead body of his 5-year-old son, Walid, who was killed in a bombing on Monday, before burial in Najaf, Iraq. Nearly 1,000 Iraqis were killed in September, one of the highest monthly death tolls in years, the U.N. says, giving a somber figure that reflects the militants' determination to rekindle large-scale sectarian conflict. Iraq is going through its worst surge in violence since 2008, with near-daily militant attacks and relentless bombings blamed on hard-line Sunni insurgents.(AP Photo/Jaber al-Helo, File) less
