Hello everyone,

We'll kick things off with Iraq today. There was a second, very deadly suicide bombing in as many days in Baghdad. Just a  few weeks ago, Iraqis (and journalists for that matter,) had started getting used to relative calm and very isolated attacks.

I'll speak with Nic Robertson in Baghdad about why we're seeing an uptick in violence and who is behind the attacks. If Sunni tribal leaders are forming strategic alliances with the government, were are the insurgents getting support from and how are they able to carry out such devastating bombings?

Also high up on today's rundown: the economy. While economic indicators continue to be a worry but for the first time in months, a bank has spoken and managed not to depress the whole market.

Citigroup says it registered its best quarter since 2007. Financials are up, the Dow is gaining ground. Will it last? We'll ask Stephanie Elam in New York.

We'll also feature a live report on the funeral of the wife of Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai. Arch-rival Robert Mugabe made an appearance at the ceremony. Nkepile Mabuse will tell us more.

Back to work for me. See you at the International Desk.

Hala,
How are you. It is good to see you hosting a new show on cnn. I want to ask why is the camera moving so erratically at some times giving the viewers a feeling of cockpit view. The show's resemblance to Minority Report is a welcome change though.
Best wishes
Asher Syed
