Violence across Iraq, including shelling of the conflict-hit city of Fallujah, killed 33 people Tuesday, as politicians haggle over forming a new governing coalition after April elections.Iraq is going through its worst protracted spell of violence since it emerged from a brutal Sunni-Shiite sectarian conflict that killed tens of thousands in 2006 and 2007, with near-daily attacks plaguing Baghdad and much of the north and west.Shelling in the city, which lies just a short drive west of Baghdad, killed 18 people and wounded 43 others, according to Ahmed Shami, a doctor at Fallujah hospital.Attacks in and around Baghdad killed nine people, security and medical officials said.Further north, attacks in Salaheddin, Nineveh and Kirkuk provinces killed six people, four of them policemen, officials said.
