(Newser) – An al-Qaeda affiliated group has claimed responsibility for the bombs that killed 127 people in Baghdad this week, and warned that many more attacks are on the way. A statement from the group said the coordinated suicide car bombings targeted the "bastions of evil and dens of apostates," AP reports. The group said it's determined to uproot the Iraqi government.
