FILE - In this Sept. 30, 2013 file photo, a man inspects a copy of the Quran, Islam's holy book, amid the ruins of the al-Hussein Shiite mosque a day after a suicide bomber struck in Musayyib, about 40 miles (60 kilometers) south 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/Hadi Mizban, File)
