Meanwhile in Baghdad

al-Qaeda set off two car bombs, following yesterday's bombing of the Iranian embassy in Beirut. The Syrian conflict is escalating very quickly outside of Syria.

A wave of attacks, mostly by car bombs, hit mainly Shiite and commercial areas of Baghdad on Wednesday morning, killing at least 24 people and wounding 87, Iraqi officials said.
The bombings were part of a surge in violence that has rocked Iraq over the past months as insurgents seek to thwart the Shiite-led government's efforts to stabilize the country.
Its apparent that AQI can now act in co-ordination from Beirut through Syria all the way through to Baghdad.
