Mideast Iraq Qaidas Resurgence-18

FILE - In this Monday, Oct. 7, 2013 file photo, Mohammed Moses grieves by the grave of his father who was killed by a suicide car bomb attack near Qabak elementary school in the Shiite Turkomen village of Qabak, just outside the town of in Tal Afar, 260 miles (420 kilometers) northwest of Baghdad, Iraq. Al-Qaida has come roaring back in Iraq since U.S. troops left in late 2011 and now looks stronger than it has in years. The terror group is capable of carrying out mass-casualty attacks several times a month, driving the death toll in Iraq to the highest level in half a decade. It sees each attack as a way to maintain an atmosphere of chaos that weakens the Shiite-led government's authority. (AP Photo, File)
