Bombings in a Shiite-majority area of Baghdad and other attacks killed 37 people yesterday, as Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki accused neighbouring states of backing jihadists in Iraq.

The government has failed to curb a year-long surge in violence that has reached levels not seen since 2008, when the country was just emerging from a brutal period of sectarian killings in which tens of thousands died.

In the deadliest attack yesterday, an explosives-rigged motorcycle ripped through an area of motorcycle shops in the Shiite-majority Sadr City district of Baghdad, killing at least 27 people and wounding 40.
