Saturday: 29 Iraqis Killed, 65 Wounded

Updated at 6:25 p.m. EST, Jan. 19, 2008

The 10-day Ashuraa religious holiday ended today, but violence towards pilgrims continued until the very end. At least 29 Iraqis were killed and 65 others were wounded across Iraq, but none in Karbala, where the main observances were held. No Coalition deaths were reported. Also, Shi'ite leader Muqtada al-Sadr reportedly is reconsidering his Mahdi Militia activity freeze, which led to a drastic reduction in the number of deaths in Iraq over the last several months.
