BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - New bombings and threats in the aftermath of yesterday's carnage in Baghdad.

As the death toll from yesterday's Sadr City attacks climbs well beyond 200, two more bombs in Tal Afar have killed
more than 20.

Sadr City residents are also reporting new clashes between Shiite militiamen and Sunni insurgents, and more mortar rounds fired on the mosque that is the headquarters of a prominent Sunni group.

The attacks come as followers of radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr threatened to pull out of the government if Iraq's prime minister meets with President Bush in Jordan next week. A spokesman blames what he terms "occupation forces" for the sectarian attacks.

Baghdad meanwhile remains under a 24-hour curfew imposed at the close of the deadliest day since the start of the war.
