Death toll from attacks in Iraq reaches 30
Iraqi official sources said the attacks, which include six car bombs, were carried out in different parts of the capital, Baghdad, and the northern city of Kirkuk on Saturday.
In Baghdad’s western neighborhood of Mansour, four people were killed and a dozen others wounded in a car bomb explosion near a restaurant.
In the northern part of the capital, a similar attack near a hospital claimed the lives of another four people and wounded eight.
A bomb explosion rocked a bus station in eastern Baghdad, killing four people and wounding six others.
Two people also died in a car bombing in a commercial street of the Jamia neighborhood, western Baghdad. Over a dozen were injured in the attack.
Another car bomb went off near a juvenile prison in Toubchi District of Baghdad. Four people died and over a dozen others were injured.
Police said a bomb explosion inside a market in the Madain area of Baghdad left three people dead and injured nine.
Mortar shells hit near a residential area in al-Adil neighborhood, killing three people and wounding nine.
In Baghdad’s western district of Amariyah, a bomb blast on a commercial street killed two people while separate bomb attacks left four people dead in Kirkuk.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but al-Qaeda-linked terrorist groups have carried out waves of coordinated bombings in Iraq in recent months.
Violence has picked up in Iraq over the past year, particularly since late December 2013, when the army dismantled a protest camp in Anbar allegedly used by terrorists.
