Iraq: 20 killed, dozens injured in bomb attacks

  • About 20 people have been killed and several injured after the Iraqi capital Baghdad and two other towns were hit by a series of bomb blasts.

    A car bomb in Baghdad's Sadr City area, home to mostly Shias, was the single deadliest attack, killing at least 15 people and injuring 35, police said.

    Just two days ago over 60 people were killed in a truck bomb attack in the same area. The Islamic State had claimed responsibility for that bombing.
