Iraq: 17 killed in series of car bombs in Baghdad
BAGHDAD, (Xinhua): At least 17 people were killed and 64 wounded in a series of car bombs in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Tuesday, the police said.
At least seven car bombs and separate bombings and shootings across Baghdad in the morning left a total of 17 killed and some 64 wounded, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.
The toll could rise as ambulances and civilian vehicles were evacuating people to different hospitals and medical centers in the city, the source said.
Violence and sporadic high-profile bomb attacks remain common in Iraqi cities despite the dramatic decrease in violence since its peak in 2006 and 2007, when the country was engulfed in sectarian killings after the U.S.-led Iraqi war.
