Bomb explosion kills 10, injures dozens in Iraq’s capital Baghdad
Four people were killed in the capital’s southern Dora neighborhood after a bomb exploded near a restaurant. Nearly a dozen others were wounded in the blast.
Two car bombs also went off near police checkpoints in the north of the capital, where one policeman and several civilians were killed and dozens were also injured.
The attacks come a day after nine people were killed and dozens injured in a series of bomb explosions in and around Baghdad.
On Thursday, the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) said that April 2013 was Iraq’s deadliest month since June 2008, with a total of 712 people killed and 1,633 wounded in bomb attacks and other forms of violence.
Almost 600 of the victims are reported to be civilians and the rest were members of Iraqi security forces.
The mission also said Baghdad was the worst affected governorate with a total of 211 killed and 486 injured.
