BAGHDAD (AP) - The holy month of Ramadan does not appear to be doing much to curb the violence in Iraq.

A wave of explosions tore through overwhelmingly Shiite cities south of Baghdad shortly before the Muslim faithful broke their fasts today, killing at least 28 people and wounding dozens of others.

The coordinated attacks followed shootings and bombings in the north earlier in the day that killed six more people.

The upsurge in attacks is raising fears that Iraq may be heading back toward the widespread sectarian fighting that peaked in 2006 and 2007.
