- +

Violence in Iraq rose sharply in April, killing 460 people, according to AFP figures, and May began with attacks on Wednesday, including one on a police station, that killed 18 people. 

Iraqi anti-government gunmen from Sunni tribes in the western Anbar province march during a protest in Ramadi, west of Baghdad, on April 26, 2013.

The majority of April's deaths came during a wave of unrest near the end of the month, when security forces moved on Sunni anti-government protesters in the north, sparking clashes that killed 53 people.
