In this Wednesday, May 8, 2013 photo, girls walk past Mohammed Fanadi al-Kubaisi mosque in western Baghdad, Iraq. Attacks on mosques, especially where Sunnis worship, have been on the rise recently. Iraqi officials have warned that insurgents are trying to take advantage of the country's political and sectarian turmoil by targeting mosques in an attempt to reignite civil strife in the country. Against the backdrop of daily violence in Iraq, the bombing at the Mohammed Fanadi al-Kubaisi mosque in Baghdad initially appeared unremarkable and drew little attention. But in the weeks that followed, the blast became just one in a sharp jump in attacks on Sunni holy sites that has added to fears the country is heading toward a new round of sectarian violence similar to the bloodletting that brought Iraq to its knees in 2006 and 2007.
