Bush: Iraq turning away from 'the abyss'
"The situation in Iraq is still tense, and we're still seeing acts of sectarian violence and reprisal," Bush said in a speech in Washington. "Yet out of this crisis, we've also seen signs of a hopeful future."
The attack on the Al-Askariya Mosque, one of the holiest sites to Shiite Muslims, was meant to ignite a civil war between Iraqi Shiites and minority Sunnis, Bush said, but "the Iraqi people made their choice. They looked into the abyss and did not like what they saw."
"Iraqis have shown the world that they want a future of peace," Bush said.
No let up in Iraqi bloodshed, bombs, mortars kill 80
Bombs and mortar blasts across Iraq killed at least 80 people in one of the country's bloodiest days for weeks as Washington urged leaders to form a coalition to avert a slide to civil war.
At least 40 people were killed and 104 wounded when three car bombs exploded Sunday evening at crowded markets in the Sadr City Shiite district of Baghdad, an Interior Ministry official said quoting hospital figures. A fourth car bomb was defused. "People were torn to pieces," a witness, who declined to be named, said at the scene.
The two car bombs detonated within minutes at Al-Hay and Al-Ula markets - less than two kilometers apart - said Interior Ministry official Lieutenant Colonel Falah al-Mohammadawi.
Earlier, 16 more died and around 25 were hurt, mostly in Baghdad, in further car and roadside bombs, mortar and gunfire attacks, the official said. Altogether, from body counts during the day at least 80 people were killed, Reuters reported.
