Default Blasts kill...

37 in Iraq and wounds over 100. However, the report I read stopped short of saying these attacks were in retaliation for the execution. Clinton condemned the attacks and believed they were to derail the March elections.

Maybe more concerning is that the explosive detection device under investigation in the UK was used at several checkpoints on the route used by the bombers.
