20 killed in Baghdad bomb blasts

  • At least 20 people were killed and many more injured in two bomb blasts in Baghdad.  

    In the Shia-dominated area of Kadhamiya, 11 people were killed in a car bomb attack.

    A suicide bomber crashed his vehicle into a security check-point in the centre of the Iraqi capital, killing at least nine people in the second attack.

    A car bomb attack in Jadida, a Shia neighborhood, had killed eight people last week. Sectarian killings are on the rise in Iraq, with both Shias and Sunnis coming under attack.
