In December, the number of car bombings in Iraq fell to its lowest level since the end of 2004. If January bombing totals released next week are higher — with a rash of attacks since the new year they appear likely to be — they follow a relative lull in the use of explosive-laden cars.

There were 30 car bombings in Iraq in December, according to the Brookings Institution’s Iraq Index. That was less than half the number in November (68) and less than half the three months prior to November (70 bombings each). Not since September 2004 (20) has the number of car bombings been so low.
