People inspect the site of a car bomb attack at a vegetable market in Jamilah neighborhood in Baghdad, Iraq. Violence inside Iraq has accelerated in recent months to levels not seen since 2008, with more than 4,000 people killed since the start of April. The growing unrest, marked by frequent coordinated car bombings and other attacks blamed mostly on al-Qaida’s local branch, is intensifying fears Iraq is heading back toward the widespread sectarian killing that peaked in 2006 and 2007.

In grainy footage of the immolation this week, police appeared to do little to stop the vigilantes' street justice.
