At least 134 killed in attacks across Iraq

80 killed in one bombing

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- In the deadliest day in Iraq in nearly four months, at least 134 people were killed and scores were wounded in separate insurgent-bomb attacks, authorities said Thursday.

In Ramadi, 80 people were killed and dozens wounded when a bomber detonated near an Iraqi police recruitment and screening drive, according to a U.S. Marine news release.

About 1,000 people were waiting in line to apply for positions on the reconstituted Iraqi police force, officials said.

Ramadi is the capital of Anbar province, where, just before the elections, U.S. and Iraqi military forces conducted several operations aimed at rooting out a strong insurgency there.

And I thought the insurgents were going to lay down their weapons and embrace democracy.
