The top UN official in Iraq has expressed his deep concern following Monday's new wave of car bombings that killed and injured dozens more Iraqis.

Acting Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq, Mr. Gyorgy Busztin said he's "deeply concerned about the heightened level of violence which carries the danger that the country falls back into sectarian strife.

The UN Envoy said "Iraq is bleeding from random violence, which sadly reached record heights during the Holy month of Ramadan".

He urged all political leaders to take immediate and decisive action to stop the senseless bloodshed.
