Iraq car bombings Leaves 23 Dead

Information reaching us indicates that a series of car bomb attacks has
killed at least 23 people and wounded 80 in Iraq’s capital, Baghdad.

Seven cars packed with explosives were blown up during the morning rush hour
in predominantly Shia Muslim areas in the north, east and centre of the city.

The blasts came as Shia marked he birthday of Imam Ali, the Prophet
Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law.

They were also the first major attacks in Baghdad since the parliamentary
elections on April 30.
Officials are still tallying votes from the polls, which took place amid a
surge in sectarian violence that has so far left 3,000 people dead this year.

There was no voting in a third of the western province of Anbar, where Sunni
tribesmen and militants linked to the jihadist Islamic State in Iraq and the
Levant control the city of Falluja and parts of Ramadi.

In Tuesday morning’s attacks, two car bombs were detonated in the
north-eastern suburb of Sadr City, killing six people and wounding 13 others.

Television footage showed a plume of thick smoke rising from cars set alight
by one of the blasts.
Two car bombs also exploded near a traffic police office in neighbouring
Baladiyat, killing three people. Another three died when a car bomb exploded on
a commercial street in nearby Jamila.
Five people were killed and 11 wounded in the northern district of Urr,
while blasts also shook Maamil, in the east, and Karrada, in the centre.

No group immediately said it was responsible for the blasts, but in the past
Sunni militant groups have carried out similar co-ordinated bomb attacks in
Shia areas of the capital.
