Iraq violence lowest since 2006 attack

Even Reuters can ignore it no longer.

Violence in Iraq has fallen to its lowest level since before a 2006 mosque attack which unleashed reprisal sectarian killings, the number two commander of US forces in Iraq said.

Lieutenant-General Raymond Odierno said attacks in Baghdad had also fallen about 50% since January, just before Washington began pouring 30,000 extra troops into Iraq to try to drag the nation back from the brink of civil war.
